The Southern Coalition is an informal network that gathers eleven arts management organizations and three research institutions from ten European countries.
A network that connects locally anchored cultural practices, aiming at overcoming isolation and boosting the skills of artists, cultural professionals, and audiences.
Stronger Peripheries is the 1st project of the Southern Coalition, created by 3 of the 14 partners in the framework of A Manual on Work and Happiness, a project co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.
Stronger Peripheries was built on the connections and learning experiences brought up by 2 other Creative Europe projects, with common goals and practices: Be SpectACTive! and RESHAPE.
