RCF - Selected artists / Europe Grand Central


Europe Grand Central is a ground-breaking cooperation endeavour aiming to build on the human act of crossing borders in order to produce inclusive statements on diversity and ultimately pave the way for global movements of connected human values.


Within the framework of this EU funded project, 10 partner organisations and collaborators*, all solid cultural operators and networks, have joined forces to develop grassroot projects and encourage trans border mobility.A series of methods to meet audiences wherever they may be are currently being elaborated by partners working on a variety of issues such as rising xenophobia towards refugees in Sweden, individual consequences of mounting economic crisis in Greece, disconnected suburbs and city-dwellers in Bologna and Bremen, political tension towards the eastern borderlands in Poland and so on. The main tool to highlight is a unique digital and conceptual virtual interface called Bordrs, connecting audience-created narratives of border-crossings.


The Roberto Cimetta Fund, as a partner in this project launched an open call to invite Arab artists to submit proposal to four thematic European art residencies on the concept of BORDERS and related to the local communities.


Following an evaluation of applications run by RCF’s Committee of experts, and in agreement with the EGC partners and RCF Board of Directors, we are pleased to announce the names of the artists who will be attending residencies in Greece, Italy, Malta, Poland and Sweden from June 2016 to January 2017. The selected artists are:  

- Amira- Géhanne Khelfallah, Morocco

- Deema Shahin, Jordan

- Dina Kobrosly, Lebanon
