INFRA · Inclusive Network for Refugee Artists

Supported by six cultural and performing arts organisations, it aims to help these artists create professional links with the European cultural sector.
This project has brought together four main partners, Latitudes Contemporaines (Lille, France), the Music and Drama Theatre (Tbilisi, Georgia), the Teatro di Roma (Rome, Italy) and the Vooruit (Ghent, Belgium), and two associated structures, the École nationale supérieure des arts visuels de La Cambre (Brussels, Belgium) and the MIR Festival (Athens, Greece).
