The project “Kaleidoscope of Contemporary Culture and Creative Industries”, also known as K3CI, connected the contemporary art scenes of Hungary and Serbia by connecting 70 young artists and managers working in the domain of culture.
Within the two years of its duration, the project hosted eight educational, networking and promotional events, including the Producers’ Forums, the Artistic Residencies, as well as concerts and film screenings. These events enabled the exchange of the knowledge and practices among the project participants, sparked artistic collaboration between the local scenes, and emphasized the role of young female artists.
Although primarily focusing on networking and capacity-building of cultural workers from Serbia and Hungary, this project also promoted the two art scenes and the artists among the audience in the Hungary-Serbia border region via four public events incorporating film, music, visual works and performances. A good example of one such event was the project’s participation in the two-day pop-up festival “Cinema Now”on 26-27 October in Novi Sad, Serbia.

The project K3CI was implemented between 1 November 2017 and 31 December 2019, within the Programme’s priority of encouraging tourism and cultural heritage cooperation, focusing on cooperation in the field of culture.
