Think-tank‘s activities are focused on knowledge development and capacity building in local, regional and international environment. Thematic focus is in the area of creative placemaking and destination development in rural context, and the further impact such cultural interventions have beyond traditional socio-economic parameters.
Integration of artistic residence within research context will enable experimentation and provide optimal research environment. The innovative integration will furthermore enable development of knowledge in local context that is relevant on broader research and policy level internationally.
