ELMUR.NET presented at MitOst Festival 2013 in Leipzig (DE)

ELMUR.NET was invited to participate at the last edition of MitOst Festival in Leipzig (DE). MitOst is an international non-profit organisation that connects committed people to a diverse and open network in Central, Eastern and South Eastern Europe and its neighboring regions. MitOst  carries out projects that promote cultural exchange and civic engagement, and act in this way on a vibrant civil society, across cultural, linguistic and political boundaries. 


Within MitOst Festival, ELMUR.NET presented a selection of inspiring and reflective videos under the actual Open Call theme: “360º Around the Human Factor, creative perspectives on human values”. 18 creative citizens from 8 different cultural backgrounds presented their audiovisual perspectives by means of 3 screens. A triptic of creative video proposals willing to inspire us and fill up our imaginarium, the place where our imagination stores the raw material from which we build up new ideas, solve problems, learn new things or understand reality. “360º Around the Human Factor” within MitOst Festival introduced a total of 21 videos presenting positive, suggestive and reflective perspectives. A visual dialogue about things that paradoxically unite and separate us: values, identity, culture, beliefs, language, prejudices and stereotypes. 


Also within the context of the festival, ELMUR.NET was presented at the “Symphosium about Mediation of Art” in which several Art Mediation Professionals from diverse european regions discussed about best practises and the professional challenges within this field. 


ELMUR.NET and MitOst are partners within the Lifelong Learning Programme: Contemporary Art for Everyone (CAfE)
