No Lockdown Art – NoLA

Within the framework of its new Creaconnections program, Transcultures, in partnership with the European Pepinieres of Creation, launched the No Lockdown Art – NoLA action to support the re-activitism of Belgian and international artists who initiated, during the period containment, interesting audio, video, multimedia projects online and freely disseminate their singularities and poetic glances to the curious connected.

In this sadly unique period (but likely to herald other disasters), many artists of all origins refused the quarantine of the shared expression. They express both a need to connect with another (connected) audience and to get out of both fear and paralysis as well as from the “all in the ego”.

Desiring to join this libertarian dynamic and give support and visibility to differentiated works online, Transcultures has launched a support program open to artists for short, medium or long term projects. In addition, in partnership with the European Pepinieres of Creation, a No Lockdown Art (#NoLA2020) call for projects was launched in mid-April 2020, which aims to support a dozen initiatives by artists in confinement.

In 2021, NoLA’s actions were amplified and many projects / creations found a diffusion, at national and international level, both face to face and online events/festivals.
