With 70 other organisation in the cultural and creative sector, On the Move signed and sent an open letter to EU institutions urging them to give a significant boost to the EU budget dedicated to culture. The letter was issued by IMPALA (Independent Music Companies Association) and calls on the EU to double the budget allocated to the successor of Creative Europe, the EU’s programme dedicated to the cultural sectors, and ensure these sectors also have access to other sources of EU funding.
This call raises the need to collectively think about a new story for the lagoon from the confrontation of its different imaginaries: tourist attraction, productive garden, dumping deposit, sports space, resort, natural oasis, complex system of matter hybrid in which nature and artifice, biology and technology, tradition and progress are amalgamated. Through the articulation of knowledge and interdisciplinary collaboration, this call proposes to use the capacity of contemporary art and the practices of visuality as a vehicle to collectively imagine the future of the Mar Menor. Deadline (for Europe based artists): 3 June 2018.
