Our European values of liberty are under threat, demonstrated by Brexit, isolationism, separation. Collective Moves is a partnership of 7 smaller European ECoC and cultural cities come together to inspire change through culture. 5 Libertalia performances will re-tell the forgotten stories of our cities European pirates, the ‘guardians of liberty’, who used collaboration and self-governance to found free Libertalia states. This model was 100% successful. We will share this model with our cities cultural practitioners in 5 Libertalia labs. To enable our cities to achieve our mutual ambition to hold the type of pan-city cultural celebrations that engages new cultural audiences. As smaller European cities we can only do this by training our talent base in site-specific multidisciplinary performance and seeding a culture of co-creation to support more ambitious bigger  impact work to happen on less resource.

CML will:

- Found ‘Collective Moves’ new pan-European community of practice over 3 years, to grow smaller European cities capacity to deliver high quality site-specific multidisciplinary performance. Delivering 5 Lbertalia ‘training through production’ labs that give 120 creative practitioners the skills and experience to co-produce 5 public performances.

- Encourage a new culture of mobile co-creation and self-governance in our creative ecology, to address isolation and separation limiting our ability to create ambitious work. Providing a platform for creative practitioners from 7 European counties to meet and co-create.

- Re-frame a new healthy collective narrative in 5 host city, that says ‘together we thrive’, inspired by our hidden European heritage of pirates who thrived through collective self-government. Told through 5 original Libertalia performances that look to engage audiences through shared heritage, representation and participation.

CML will support a more resilient healthy cultural economy for our cities.
