By organising an art residency in Budapest, Lisbon and Copenhagen - Artistic Journey - the Project seeks to empower creators to approach the subject matter, re-imagining the history of the transatlantic trade of enslaved people from the perspective of its links in the European continent and its existing cultural traces. The selected artists will travel to the three cities to create art designed to promote a creative look into the past collective memory. Along this Journey, artists and creators will be encouraged to fully take advantage of new technologies and foster personal capacity building.
The Journey will be closed with a Final Event in Nantes, a city filled with vestiges of its slave-trading past. It will be an opportunity to host the Award Ceremony for the residency creators and to engage the artwork with the social debate on the topic.
