Intercult’s projects always begin with conditions or a context we wish to influence. We work cross-disciplinary and trans-regionally, inviting artists from different disciplines and places. We work with partners from all over Europe. We have, through the years, worked with several International and national collaborative- and cultural projects across EU and Europe. Our current projects are:
Woven Network Sweden
Woven Network Sweden is a project that aims to highlight and explore women’s voices and experiences around the Covid 19-pandemin in Sweden. Over the course of five months the four participating artists will partake in a series of digital events and artistic research, which will result in a concluding digital exhibition. Woven Network Sweden is a continuation of the European projects Woven Network Ukraine (2020) , Woven Network Govan (2021) and Woven Network Nordics (2021).
Intercult Productions – Project leader, together with Euroregion Baltic, Baltic Sea Cultural Centre in Gdansk, Estonian Women’s Studies and Resource Centre (ENUT) and activists from Kaliningrad Oblast undertook this BSR communities’ resilience project. The project objective is to empower representatives of vulnerable groups: women, youth and immigrants, with a sense of identity, continuity and belonging and provide them with skills relevant for employability.

The partnership consists of four organizations from Greece, Poland, Scotland, and Sweden. The overall aim is to create a cross-learning between the creative-, the educational- and the technical sectors.
Woven Network Nordics

Woven Network, or Women’s Network, is a 6 month online art residence involving 7 female artists from 5 European countries across 3 timezones. This is our creative response to the pandemic: sharing experiences of women workers who are on the frontlines battling the coronavirus. Our artists will seek to highlight the women working in healthcare, education, and other essential service sectors.
