About Centriphery

Because each periphery has its own center, Centriphery gives citizens of a so-called "periphery" a central voice in exploring and transforming local narratives and myths and encourages them to participate in recreating local identities and European narratives. Led by Festival der Regionen (Austria), the project gathers 8 partners: New Culture Foundation (Bulgaria), Dansehallerne (Denmark), Espoo City Theatre (Finlanda), La Manufacture Collectif Contemporain (France), Rijeka 2020 – European Capital of Culture (Croatia), Cultura Nova Festival (Netherlands), Walk & Talk (Azores, Portugalia) and Asociația Prin Banat (Romania). Centriphery is co-financed by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.

Local parteners of the project: Timișoara 2023 - European Capital of Culture, the independent theater Auăleu, Timiș County Directorate for Culture and AMBASADA.
