Georgian refugees living in Hot Spring SPA area

CORNERS – turning Europe inside out has been chosen for the EU Creative Europe grant 2014–2018. A huge honor and proof of our stubborn, consistent work through the last years.


We are one of 21 major European projects to receive multi-annual funding for this funding period. The project includes several culture organizations from different parts of Europe. Artists from various places meet and get inspired by one another and the environments that they meet. Corners helps to create new art projects that involve people on sight and influences artists through new encounters.

It means that production planning and tour making can continue as planned. There is room for improvement and development. It means at least 2 more Xpeditions (Puglia, Italy 2014 and Northeastern England 2015). It means moving from research and concept to production and action. It means building on the beautiful efforts already made until now with Kids on the CORNERS in Ljubljana, Put Yourself in My Place in Umeå, and different showcases/basecamps in Zagreb, Gdansk, Rijeka, Belfast, Umeå and Stockholm. CORNERS Ersboda (Umeå 2014) will be the first bigger testing ground in november 2014, engaging 4 CORNERS projects, a number of short DocuArt film presentations and hundreds of people.

Other future places are: Haninge, Stockholm Sweden (2015), Belfast Northern Ireland (2015), Prizren Kosovo (2015,2016), Serbia (2016) Rijeka Kroatia (2016), San Sebastian, Spain (2016). More places will follow..

Below CORNERS-activities organised by Intercult, and on the CORNERS webpage you can follow the development of the artistic projects.

CORNERS Ersboda – Turning Umeå inside out!

A city is made of many small segments, each with its own personality. Some parts are hidden, some traditions have been destroyed, some others re-invented. Neighborhoods are where people live, work, play and learn. They are sometimes peaceful places and sometimes disrupted, challenging.CORNERS brings a platform of international artists & animators into direct contact and co-creation with people living in Ersboda, both Östra and Västra: a diverse and complicated area about 6 km outside of the city center… or?……Where is the center? Who remains at the “edges”?
