Field(s) Intangible Cultural Heritage.
Description The TRAD & NOVA 6X6 project aims to generate know-how at European level on how to keep popular and traditional culture alive from the exchange and “cross fertilization” between traditional root initiatives and innovative proposals in the different cultural and artistic fields (crafts, live arts, visual arts, popular festivities …). We want to do it based on the exchange of experiences between projects from different European territories. We start from the thesis that the best way to keep tradition alive is to fertilize it with contemporary aesthetics and languages. We also start form our knowledge that throughout Europe there are artists immersed in community processes that use tradition as the raw material of their creative processes.

The TRAD & NOVA 6X6 project aims to achieve four results from four instruments that determine four specific lines of work:

  • Enhance existing good practices, contributing to its description and dissemination on an international scale, through a specific digital platform.
  • Extract from these good practices those elements that may be transferable to other contexts and cultural situations, through the development of a specific tool kit.
  • Experience processes to revitalize initiatives from traditional heritage with innovative cultural and artistic dynamics in the territories of the various partners that participate in the project.
  • Create the necessary sustainability conditions for an international award (provisional name “Sodoku Prize”) that recognizes this type of initiatives on a biannual basis.

Upcycling by Design:
Developing Social and Sustainable Skills

In these times of environmental and social crisis and with the sustainability of our future at stake, we are influencing the way of creating and producing. Of course, this is a considerable challenge as it requires a fundamental shift in the approach and the mindset of manufacturers and designers alike. Upcycling transforms by-products, waste materials and unwanted materials into new products for better environmental value.
Industrial Waste: Design for Good
Normally we use materials to create objects which increases the scarcity of raw materials and the depletion of finite resources. Simultaneously, waste produced remains an untapped resource. Our work is based on collaborations with creators, designers, artisans, manufacturers and communities who genuinely wish to create new and sustainable design projects with these reusable materials which in turn create objects for the good of the people AND the planet.

Sustainable Design Storytelling
We hope re-designing, re-imagining, re-mixing and re-using will become a new standard in design. We are committed to social and sustainable design. Our goal is not only to create beautiful products but develop a concept: a way to create products which tell great stories.
We envision an innovative, small-scale, co-operative and ecological model to create and exhibit projects based on this exploitation of waste materials. We are taking advantage of the diversity and richness of cultures to create interactive experiences, build relationships, share knowledge and stories. We aspire to open a window of opportunity for CSR (corporate social responsibility), governments (the public sector), in partnership with either  business (the private sector), or charities (the community sector) to develop and implement « Upcycling by design » providing learning opportunities through sponsored social and environmental impact programs. A flourishing world for our environment, communities, and for our well being.
Objectives :
 To support the emergence of new upcycling designers and projects: educating professionals and general public through training and workshops.
 To encourage upcycling designers and projects around Europe: to showcase design projects through exhibitions and competitions.
 To promote the values of upcycling Design: new technologies and good practices that are socially and environmentally responsible.
 To create a network/community: interdisciplinary Creatives sharing the same vision.
Our project is based at the crossroads of research, awareness, education, creation, networking and business development :
Research and Networking:
We are seeking partners who aligned with our mindfulness of social and environmental design to collaborate, promote and generate a network for “Upcycling by design” concept.
Our curation involves observing and identifying upcycling projects and designers; local materials, industries and manufacturers.
Thereafter we review an inventory of products for our Upcycling by Design exhibit.
Training and Business Development:
We wish to encourage a rapidly changing field by helping designers to think with a different philosophy and innovation. We train creators by providing them with knowledge, skills and tools.
This training is intended for design professionals and students as well as the general public- for all who wish to open up to a new, more responsible approach to creation. The challenge is to create a process for the reuse of materials as well as
inventing adapted manufacturing techniques to create new business opportunities by developing environmental, economic and social activities.
Consciousness and Education:
We want to highlight the existence of experimental practices and success stories (artisanal, artistic, industrial) through exhibitions and all different ways of broadcasting.
We would like to develop contests and workshops for upcycling by Design opening up new creative models.
We stimulate exchanges and reflections in innovation, quality, functionality and aesthetics. But also our focus is co-creation and cultural diversity which are the bases of the desirable and sustainable future that we want to promote and create identity and awareness.

Name Studio6 – Contemporary music collective

Short description
Studio 6 is a collective of Serbian performing musicians, composers and theorists, devoted to promotion of today’s music. Aside from its main enterprise, which is planning and coordinating the activities of its instrumental ensemble, collective Studio 6 engages in educational programmes, discussion panels and regional network building with an aim to set up and nurture a vital and unique contemporary music scene in Serbia. The instrumental ensemble Studio 6 gathers internationally
acclaimed soloists and performers of contemporary composed and improvised music. The ensemble encourages an open dialogue between listening, interpreting and creating in contemporary artistic practices. Ensemble’s activities range from first performances of XX-XXI century solo and ensemble works, to educational courses for students and performances of experimental pieces by younger generations of composers, improvisers and sound artists. A special attention is given to creative collaboration on new pieces, given the modular possibilities of the ensemble’s unorthodox instrumentation, which includes trumpet, harp, accordion, cello and electronics. www.studio6.st

Musical creation as collaborative work of art. We believe that the terrain of musical innovation in the 21st century will be that of creative collaboration, whereas that of the 20th was principally that of new sounds and technologies for music, while still leaving the roles of composer, interpreter, improvising musician etc. as separate from one another. New forms of music could now come about through new ways of making music, and in particular by going beyond the idea of the composer-artist as sole creator to a situation where different ideas, skills and approaches may be combined in many different ways, as is already the case in pop and jazz composition/performance. Our work up until now with the ensemble and other projects has been a step in this direction. Our aim is to bring creative musicians together, through series of workshops, performances, master classes, documentation; to create a network/association which will enable such projects to happen easier in the future. Our focus is on collaboration within the music medium, rather than between different  disciplines.
