Remote places & partners

SMOTIES project focuses on 10 small remote areas in Europe which are depopulated, relationally distant, and depositories of material and immaterial culture that risk being undervalued, not consolidated, not passed on to the next generation, and hence lost. SMOTIES aims to uncover and stimulate potential avenues for local evolutionary processes by leveraging less-known existing excellence niches.

Each partner selected a small and remote place in their country to benefit from the design of cultural and creative innovations within public spaces and in collaboration with local stakeholders.

Partners are distributed throughout ten European cities and are Nodes of Creativity, working with small and remote places as interlocutors, activators, and supporters of creative works to be anchored in public spaces.
