THE FUNDING AND NETWORK PROJECT OF THE MIGROS CULTURE PERCENTAGE FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS
m2act supports cultural co-creation, promotes accessible knowledge transfer, is dedicated to fair practice and encourages sustainable structures within the performing arts.
m2act supports co-creative projects that contribute to fair and sustainable practices. The annual m2act Campus offers a platform for those engaged in the cultural sector and other specialists to exchange ideas. The focus of this multi-day event is on working together to create and try out forward-thinking ideas and approaches for the performing arts. Knowledge, insights and practical tips gathered at the events and throughout the projects that have received funding are available to all interested parties in a digital toolbox.
The m2act toolbox offers practical tips and solutions developed through the co-creative projects, which can be used to meet old and new challenges in the performing arts. Findings and insights from the events and projects that have received funding are continually added to the toolbox. These tools are available for unrestricted use and further development.
