About Centriphery

More info about what Centriphery is about  https://www.centriphery.eu

Because each periphery has its own center, Centriphery gives citizens of a so-called “periphery” a central voice in exploring and transforming local narratives and myths and encourages them to participate in recreating local identities and European narratives. Led by Festival der Regionen (Austria), the project gathers 8 partners: New Culture Foundation (Bulgaria), Dansehallerne (Denmark), Espoo City Theatre (Finlanda), La Manufacture Collectif Contemporain (France), Cultura Nova Festival (Netherlands), Walk & Talk (Azores, Portugalia) and Asociația Prin Banat (Romania). Centriphery is co-financed by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.
