Project Future DiverCities - Creativity in an urban context is focused on building and developing new ways of thinking and experiencing culture as an alternative to mainstream, globalised attitudes. It aims to reinforce social bonds through art and culture as they are the most real and tangible part of Europe that connects and binds us.

The project will center around the artistic domains of music, digital art and street art. Through combination of values (establishing a fair wage for the creators), methodology (making use of design thinking), people (smart curation involving European citizens and the development of smart co-creations and partnerships) and technology (a new streaming platform and mobile applications that support independent artists), Future DiverCities will in the next 4 years (including 2020) produce 23 local art labs, art residencies, public performances, creative and participative events in each of the partner countries.
