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.
You can find the map at http://artsector.eu/ or http://kunstsektor.at/
“artsector.eu” is a project of Styrian Summer Art in cooperation with the publishing company “Beletrina” from Ljubljana/Slovenia and the Savaria Museum in Szombathely (Vas County/Hungary).

“Echoes from the Alps-Adriatic Region” – HAPPENING 1

The AAA supported the preparation of the project “ECHOES FROM INVISIBLE LANDSCAPES” which is co-financed by the EU-“Europe for Citizens”-program. 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.
In the project´s framework, “HAPPENING 1” will take place from the 12th to the 16th of December 2017 under the motto “Echoes from the Alps-Adriatic Region” at Klanghaus Untergreith in St. Johann im Saggautal (Steiermark/Styria). On several journeys across the Alps-Adriatic area, sounds and noises were collected and compiled into a sound map of this region in order to reflect the cultural and social diversity. This sound map will be presented at HAPPENING 1 and also on the project´s website www.echoesfrominvisiblelandscapes.com.

In his first statement Varaždin County´s Prefect Radimir Čačić pointed out that his goal will be “an even more visible AAA so that the term `Alps-Adriatic´ becomes a brand in the best sense of the word”.
