The Spur is a project for the creation of a European cooperation network made up of seven cultural organisations that function on a local and international scale as cultural operators. Lead by Bòlit. Contemporary Art Centre. Girona, the project also includes Centre d’Art Le LAIT – Laboratoire Artistique International du Tarn (Albí, France), Bureau des Arts et des Territoires (Montpeller, France), Fundació Es Baluard Museu d’Art Modern i Contemporani de Palma, Sputnik Oz (Bratislava, Slovakia), Fondazione per l’Arte (Rome, Italy) and the Euroregion Pyrenees-Mediterranean.
The project is set to be developed for two years (2016-2018) and its aim is to create a European cooperation network focusing above all on the field of visual arts. It has two key objectives: to develop innovative projects for building the professional capacities and transnational mobility of creators and to implement transnational co-management processes between different organisations.
The Spur aims to fulfil these objectives through five actions: Exploration, Innovation, Knowledge, Communication and Organisation.
