Some Call Us Balkans (SCUB), cultural cooperation project co-funded by Creative Europe, is a transdisciplinary research and community that aims to mobilise the collective creation of knowledge and imagination, enabling representations of the Balkans beyond borders and nationalisms.
SCUB implements art-based participatory research practices to deconstruct myths and misconceptions about the Balkans, building a common ground for cross-border cooperation, sociocultural transformation and co-creation.
Starting through an initial research in six different Balkan sites and communities, SCUB follows three main research streams: The Commons and Right to the City, Migration and Labour, Cultural and Natural Heritage, envisioning new ecologies, modes of inhabiting the Balkans and coming together on a common ground.
The final outcome of the project will be the co-creation of a mobile forum and a travel itinerary crossing all partners' locations. The project engages with a wide spectrum of topics, including ecology, mobility, citizenship, environment, gender issues, minorities, memory, identity, public space and borders.
