On 29 October 2018 in Brussels, the partners have officially launched the project “Parallel Traces: A new lens on Jewish Heritage”, co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union, and had a chance to coordinate their efforts and activities for the project implementation.
During the next three years, the Parallel Traces project will discover, rethink and raise awareness about the European Jewish Heritage as an integral part of European history. This ambitious aim will be reached through different mechanisms reinforced by off-line and online communication activities addressed in particular but not only to the areas of influence of our local partners.
A pan-European call, open to creative people throughout Europe, but focused on participating localities represented by local partners of the consortium, will provide an opportunity for the creation of original digital photographic and audiovisual artwork. This original digital artwork related to Jewish heritage will represent valuable artistic material and, presented in specific exhibitions, which benefit from strong cross-border visibility, thus contributing in a very concrete manner to the transnational circulation of cultural and creative works.
Moreover, a new augmented reality app will be created with the scope of uncovering, rethinking and understanding the Jewish heritage in the urban environment.
