Cultural Mobility and Cooperation
The intersection between virtual and real networks, the 'material' and the 'digital' space of dialogue (de-materialised space) produces new forms of facilitating exchange and connecting realities. Instruments like portals and websites, artistic experiments produced in cyberspace are becoming a ‘culture' in themselves. Communication, information, selection of information; art, forms, media, interfaces, are all submitted today to the virtualisation of the traditional dimensions of time and space. Mobility, inter-culturalism and co-operation are redefined by the 'interactive cultural space'.

Many cultural organisations in Europe, amongst which IETM,the international network for contemporary performing arts, have recently initiated cultural portals, data bases and online information resources dedicated specifically to cultural mobility and cooperation. On The Move, OCPA, ACRONIM, MARCEL are some of them. Instruments for development at the service of IETM members and European and international cultural community (artists and managers) these 'digital tools' are appropriated laboratories for a reality check of the shift from tradition to broader ways of understanding mobility and cultural cooperation.
