Well after a year of planning, we're finally off to Romania for one week for our first international laboratory. We've pulled together a really interesting line up of designers, dj's, textile artists, sound artists and curators to take part in the workshops: UK - Jason Singh and Berit Greinke; Romania- Carla Szabo, Cosmin Tapu and Catalin Matei, and from Turkey - Pinar Basoglu and Gozde Ilkin.
Over the next week, we'll be posting some highlights of the laboratory as we work together exploring the connections between textiles and sound.
The project has been developed in partnership with electronic music pioneers Rokolectiv, MNAC (the National Museum of Contemporary Art), and the Museum of the Romanian Peasant all in Bucharest, and c-u-m-a (Contemporary Utopian Management Agency) from Istanbul. It's very kindly funded by the British Council's Creative Collaboration Project Fund, which supports collaborations between the UK and south east Europe.
