Moving in, Moving on: TEH Startup Support Programme Publication #3 featuring Cinema ARTA in Cluj-Napoca

TEH Startup Support Programme is a training programme that we have designed to provide support to selected emerging non-governmental cultural centres across Europe. Through this programme, we aim to share our knowledge and experience with new initiatives that emerge in regions and countries where neither civil society nor critical artistic production is encouraged. We believe that these initiatives have the potential to become exciting cultural and artistic hubs responsible for nurturing civic agency in their communities.

The beneficiary region in 2017-2018 was the Balkans. Three centres from the region participated in the programme. Below you can find our third startup programme publication featuring Cinema ARTA – a new cultural hub in Cluj, Romania. 

Cinema ARTA is a new cultural hub and a catalyser for the independent cultural and creative sector in Cluj. The centre isn’t only a place where cultural events, but also a significant place for the community. Believing in the impact of culture on the societal and urban development, ARTA created a multidisciplinary platform, which would contribute to the cultural and social life of the city. Center promotes cultural values, diversity and inclusiveness, through the showcase and interaction between various forms of art, and also between people.

You can find here the report on ARTA. It provides deeper insights into the development of the organisation, its current state and future ambitions.

As a part of the TEH Startup Support Programme, Luca Kövécs held a three-day workshop with the ARTA’s team to help them construct their brand. You can find the workshop report here.

The Startup Support Programme is part of the project Factories of Imagination, which is co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.
