Testimonial from Irish Partner

RUA RED is committed to supporting the development of digital arts practices. We recognise the need to support Artists in their investigations and intersection with technologies. EUCIDA is a three year European project led by RUA RED, South Dublin Arts Centre, and co-funded by Creative Europe. The project partners are RUA RED, South Dublin Arts Centre, Espace Multimedia Gantner, Bourogne (France) and Rezeknes novada pasvaldiba (Latvia). Together we will create a platform for digital arts across Europe and raise the profile of artists that work with technologies.

EUCIDA will achieve this through a number of major European exhibitions, events, an international conference and by linking in with European digital Arts Festivals. EUCIDA will create opportunities for Artists to produce new work and support the development of ambitious, innovative and interdisciplinary work on a trans-European level. The EUCIDA website will connect people and signpost opportunities for both artists and audiences. Our vision for the EUCIDA website is one of a place where art and technology meets. A place where Artists connect with a community of support across Europe.
