Carnivals are the celebration of diversity as well as a space where you can escape reality for a while and build your own narrative. 

In Recalaim the Future, five organisations have joined forces to create a nomadic carnival for change. The project partners believe art to be a generator of dreams and actions. Reclaim the future is the creation of a common ground where stories of Europe can be voiced and shared. Together with local communities, they create carnivals celebrating local perspectives and join them together to share the experience of contemporary Europe.

The carnivals form parallel realities, giving tools to reflect on the world we live in.They invite the audience to be participants in the creation based on each one´s needs and perspectives. They promote artistic mobility by sharing performances with each other and invite artists to work in their partners´ local context. This builds places where cultures and voices meet in a common and diverse narrative of Europe in which we all co-exist.

A film and research team is invited to collect and formulate the experiences. The long-term goal is to promote collaboration through an international network, joining artists, civil society, researchers, stakeholders. And specifically those whose voices are seldom or ever heard.
