CUMEDIAE is involved in raising awareness about the European Jewish Heritage through the project “Parallel Traces: A new lens on Jewish Heritage.”
Parallel Traces, which interacts with content and heritage in an innovative, open and plural way, offers from an essentially visual viewpoint, an opportunity to unearth the traces of the Jewish cultural heritage in urban architecture and planning from the perspective of discovery by European citizens.
The project discovers and rethinks the European Jewish Heritage as an integral part of European history through different mechanisms: a call for artists, off-line and online communication activities addressed in particular but not only to the areas of influence of our local partners, and at the development of a new app. A pan-European call, open to creative people throughout Europe, but focused on participating localities represented by local partners of the consortium, provides an opportunity for the creation of original digital photographic and audiovisual artwork based on clearly defined criteria ensuring the consistency between the artwork and the project’s objectives. This original digital artwork related to Jewish heritage will represent valuable artistic material and, presented in specific exhibitions, which benefit from strong cross border visibility, thus contributing in a very concrete manner to the transnational circulation of cultural and creative works.
