Create To Connect - Create to Impact

Create to Connect -> Create to Impact (CtC -> CtI) is a continuation of the Create to Connect (CtC) project which started in 2012 as a joint effort of thirteen European cultural organizations (including Noorderzon) to create powerful and long-lasting connections of artists, cultural operators, researchers and audience; seeking new production models for engaging the audience in new, innovative ways; and creating together new public arenas through dialogue and participation.

For the next four years the network is expanding to fifteen partners – 14 cultural organizations and one research organization. Partners of Create to Impact are shifting its focus from audience building to creating impact – the value that cultural organizations can produce in terms of change, innovation, empowerment and emancipation. We will strive to achieve the impact through three lines of activities - Space to Connect will strive to change the use of space, within and outside of theaters with artistic tools. Create to Connect will be a line of (co)productions trying to apply new models of collectivity to production processes. Adapt to Connect will aim to adapt shared work between partners to the local contexts. All that will be monitored by the Research to Connect, a continuous research through which anthropologists and ethnographers will try to define the effects of our activities and the impact of our work in the society.
