LIBERTY is a project co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union. It was created to deal with themes such as community cohesion, migration, local and European identity through festivals and artistic performances.

The project aims to motivate and provide young artists, directors and performers with food for thought about the future of Europe by engaging them in the project, from concept development to public entertainment. This will help create a network of exchanges, meetings, common initiatives and collaborations among different countries. 

LIBERTY brings together 12 cultural partners from 10 countries, partners with shared values, passions and commitment; the project is an initiative that was coordinated by UK agency ArtReach and involves Explora and other partners:

The project aims to: 

  • create an international team of artists from all partners’ countries;
  • create a portfolio of 750 international artists under 30;
  • organise a festival featuring performing arts, seminars and activities to engage the whole community.

LIBERTY will involve Explora with a Festival of Visual Arts to take place on November 22nd, 2020, the International Children’s Day, and a Festival of Digital Arts, scheduled for summer 2022.

For the Festival of Visual Arts, the free event taking place at Explora in November, panels covering the north and south walls of the pavilion will be changed.
Moreover a call for visual artists is now open to select young European illustrators for LIBERTY VOICES, a temporary visual art exhibition and online interactive activities.
