The successful arts and artist exchange programme entitled TRANSFER, installed and organised by NRW KULTUR-sekretariat, has proven to be effective particularly in terms of its process-based methodology. On the basis of the great experiences made with this concept over the last years, it will now be expanded:
The former TRANSFER, which had a focus on the visual arts, will become TRANSFER INTERNATIONAL – and will become a transfer for various artistic disciplines.
Consequently, the programmes will in future be interdisciplinary in nature and focus on different genres. TRANSFER INTERNATIONAL will have a focus on bi or trilateral collaborations and cooperation.
In NRW, this is done jointly with the relevant local institutions, in dialogue with the cities as well as with the regional Ministry of Culture, the European ministry and the relevant state institutions.
