SEAS has ended - visit the new web site!

After three and a half years, 17 separate towns and cities (actually 21 if you include each of the places on SEAS X), 20 commissioned works and nearly 80,000 audience and participants, the Black/North SEAS “arts adventure” came to an end on 30 November 2010.


SEAS Dock - a tool for people who engage in transnational collaboration in Europe - was produced by Intercult in collaboration with Lidia Varbanova and Stratoponjak, with the generous support of Arts Council England.


The evaluation and documentation web site of SEAS presents 26 recommendations for future multilateral projects, reflections on key issues by Dragan Klaic, spin offs, lessons learned and reflections by the SEAS management team. Also, find out about the SEAS research, productions, festival events, artists, organisations, press quotes, films and more.


Black/North SEAS was organised by Intercult in collaboration with the co-organisers KIT (Københavns Internationale Teater), BADco., Hotel Pro Forma, Sfumato Theatre Laboratory, Arts Council England and Tromsø kommune, and with generous support by the EU Culture Programme 2007-2013.

Intercult (IC) is an independent production and resource NGO based in Stockholm, Sweden – and one of the founders of River//Cities.

 

Operating in Sweden and Europe since 1996, Intercult initiates and leads collaborative culture projects and networks. Having an active interest in national and European cultural policy IC also participate in the development of intercultural and international project competence.

 

IC share experience through seminars, conferences, lectures and mentorship. Engaging in trans-border cultural projects, IC embraces the challenges of contemporary diversity, voices and expressions. IC works cross-disciplinary and trans-regionally, inviting artists from different disciplines and places to the projects and Basecamps at their venue. IC works with partners from all over Europe, Caucasus and Africa. With 20 projects in-house since 1996 IC has several direct experiences of managing EU and other international culture projects.

 

From the home base on the south side of Stockholm, IC interacts as a project-based platform, engaging with others on art management and cultural policy development. With artistic expression as a starting point, they focus on the value of intercultural competence aimed at artists, organisers, policymakers and sponsors – creating conditions for the exchange of ideas and models.

 

The role of culture as a factor for urban development in particular cities confronted with change, harbour cities, industrial areas, river division is an issue that has engaged Intercult for a long time. Some years ago IC developed: BLACK/NORTH SEAS – a 3,5 years multidisciplinary commissioning, producing and touring project linking Black Sea and North Seas artists.
