Coordinated by the Kooperativa platform, the Regional Lab: New Culture Spaces and Networks as drivers of an Innovative and Sustainable Bottom-up Development of Regional Collaboration project brings together networks and cultural centres from six countries of the ex-Yugoslav region:

Anibar (Kosovo), Društvo Asociacija (Slovenia), Jadro Association (North Macedonia), Operacija grad (Croatia), Asocijacija NKSS (Serbia) and OKC Abrašević (Bosnia and Herzegovina). Drawing on the innovative practices developed on the independent cultural scenes, our aim is to offer a framework and infrastructure for exchanging, strengthening and advocating new, democratic and participatory models of governance, as well as for region-wide activity and mutual support of independent cultural actors.

During a three-year period we will implement various activities, including discursive and educational programs, advocacy, and publishing.

The project is co-funded by the European Union, Creative Europe programme (2014-2020), as part of the open call aimed at strengthening cultural cooperation and competitiveness of the cultural and creative industries in the Western Balkans.
