We are very proud to announce that our project “Parallel Traces: A new lens for Jewish Heritage” has been selected by the European Creative program of the European Commission.

On October 10 and 11, Victor Sorenssen and Caroline Lambert representing The Luxembourg based European Association for the Preservation and Promotion of Jewish Culture and Heritage (AEPJ), project leaders of Parallel Traces and Stefanie Thomas from Culture and Media Agency Europe CUMEDIAE aisbl participated in the Kick Off meeting of Creative Europe in Brussels.

The sessions were targeted around the working methodology for European cultural projects and sharing experiences and objectives with other organizations that have been selected.

Parallel Traces is a cross-cutting, collaborative, pan-European project that offers a renewed look at the significance of Jewish heritage today to create a new window that offers an original and rigorous perspective on the past, present and future of European Jewish history. Parallel Traces, which interacts with content and heritage in an innovative, open and plural way, will offer 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 will discover, rethink, and raise awareness about the European Jewish Heritage as an integral part of European history through different mechanisms: a call for artists, offline and online communication activities, and the development of a new app.

The project presents a well-defined consortium that brings together 8 organisations from 5 EU and 2 non EU countries. The consortium, led by The European Association for the Preservation and Promotion of Jewish Culture and Heritage (AEPJ) based in Luxembourg, also includes Culture and Media Agency Europe aisbl (Belgium), Imascono Art S.L. and local partners Patronat Call de Girona (Spain),Tacka Kommukacije (Serbia), Tarbut Foundation (Romania), Bente Kahan Foundation (Poland) and Israeli House (Georgia). It is a project co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union.
