'ARGOS': Actes de Création et Dynamiques de Collaborations Croisées - Arts de la Scène | Creative Europe Cooperation Project
The aim of the project ARGOS is to investigate the space of dynamic encounters between academics and artists while focusing on the study of the endeavours and the artistic creation using new technical means such as virtual reality. In this context, five experimental activities will take place in five countries (Italy, Belgium, France, Portugal, and Lebanon) so that all involved in the project may establish ways of identifying and creating links among the bodies, the academics, the employees in the field of culture, the wider audience and the students. Chiara Guidi is one of the artists to conduct a research experiment at Teatro Comandini, the headquarters of the Socìetas Raffaello Sanzio.
Collaborating Partners: Université Rennes 2 (host institution, France); University of the Peloponnese (Greece); Universidade de Lisboa (Portugal); Université de Lille (France); Universiteit Antwerpen (Belgium).

'CREARCH': CReative European ARCHives as Innovative Cultural Hubs | Creative Europe Cooperation Project
The main purpose of the CREARCH Project is to develop a European network of innovative cultural archives, to utilize and promote the history and memory that these archives preserve by means of interactive communication, narration in various forms, digital technology and the performing arts. The anticipated outcome of the Project is the increase in the accessibility of the archives and the attraction of the attention of a wider audience. CREARCH draws attention to significant European archives, among which is the Italian archive of the Socìetas Raffaello Sanzio.
