The Make a Move project executed and tested an innovative Art Incubator program. This program was designed particularly for non-institutionalized theatre practitioners and small independent cultural operators, primarily from the field of contemporary movement-based theatre.

The Make a Move project improved capacities of 45 independent, movement-based European artists to work transnationally and internationally, enhanced their professional skills, facilitated peer learning, education, and training, improved their career opportunities to access new markets and reach new and wider audiences, enabled network possibilities, building partnerships and contacts. The Make a Move project was born as a way to bridge the gap between where we as an arts sector are now, and where we would like to be in the near future.

The project is co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union.

Lab in Rijeka & “Make a Move” project are part of Rijeka 2020 – European Capital of Culture programme,
Kitchen flagship – Center for Creative Migrations.

Project activities are implemented with the financial support of RIJEKA 2020 LLC, Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Croatia, Kultura nova Foundation, City of Rijeka, Primorje-Gorski kotar County, Austrian Cultural Forum Zagreb and Embassy of Spain in Zagreb.
