RISK CHANGE refers to people who are forced to risk change that should allow them to live a better life. RISK is a word that refers to migrants, and CHANGE is a word that represents settled residents who are not in the process of migrating. These are two opposing sides – 2 target groups of the project. Within the project, it is certainly about the focus on the factor of change that strives to actualize the contemporary social phenomenon, and through the active connection of trans- and inter-disciplinary art, culture, science, ICT technology and creating new audiences that will be integrated into all RC processes. Each of the project partners will, in relation to national circumstances and migration policies, develop artistic research programs that will focus on the integration of migrants into local communities.
