Alps-Adriatic Art Sector is online!

“artsector.eu” is a virtual map for artists and art initiatives, museums and galleries from the Alps-Adriatic area.
The project, which was supported by the AAA, combines contemporary art and culture – it is a tool for artists to search for cooperation partners and informs about cultural events in the region.
Visitors of the site can enjoy virtual art trips, meet artists and cultural associations and experience what public spaces, museums and galleries have to offer.
Of course all artists, cultural associations, museums and galleries throughout the AAA are warmly invited to become part of “artsector.eu”, since it is intended to constantly expand the website. Contemporary artists and cultural organizations can register for free and it is particularly interesting for those who want to network across borders or plan an EU-co-financed cultural project. A registration form is available on the website.

Coordinated by the project partners newly established “Echo Collective Network” (Enterprise Z, Wieser Publishing Company, Alps-Adriatic University Klagenfurt, Zveza Mink Tolmin and Mani doo) the two-year project invites the local population of the Alps-Adriatic area and international artists as “agents of cultural reflection”, to reconsider social structures based on our relationships.
