European Mobile Lab for Interactive Artists (E-MobilArt), CULTURE Programme,
under the auspices of the European Commission Education, Audiovisual & Culture
Executive Agency (EACEA)

E-MobilArt aims to give experienced European artists the opportunity to collaborate in order to create works of interactive art, emphasising the interdisciplinary and intercultural nature of this cooperation. For the purposes of this project, the UoA NTLab collaborates with the University of Lapland (Finland) and the University of Applied Arts (Vienna, Austria). Apart from these educational establishments, additional collaborating bodies include two art galleries (the State Museum of Contemporary Art in Thessaloniki, Greece, and the Academy of Fine Arts in Katowice, Poland), two hardware manufacturers and soft-ware
developers (Cycling74, Making Things), and one of the most acclaimed academic journals focusing on electronic art, LEONARDO/OLATS, which is expected to significantly contribute to the dissemination of the project’s results. All three higher education institutions involved in this project will organise a total of
three workshops, one in each country (Greece, Finland, Austria). The aim of these workshops is twofold: workshop participants will have the opportunity to be trained in the use of relevant hardware and software by scientists and qualified experts; in addition, cooperation among artists will be adequately supported at
all stages of the creative process. Towards the end of the project, works will be exhibited by the art galleries involved in the project. Ultimately, this project aims to create a network of individuals and institutions that are actively involved in interactive art, such as educational establishments, cultural organisations, hardware manufacturers, software developers and renowned experts in the field.
