Symposium – Future Epics project - A public event with lectures and discussions at the Vitlycke Performing Arts Center
In September 2018, the Future Epics project was launched with the aim of linking various historical narratives and contemporary art through an online platform, with the active involvement of the target audience by gathering stories from different historical periods coming from partner countries and all across Europe, focusing on those which are ignored and less popular for various reasons – from politics to discrimination. This project is supported by Creative Europe, and implemented by Heartefact Fund (Serbia), together with its partners: Vitlycke Center for Performing Arts (Sweden), TASCA (Spain) and Dubrovnik Summer Festival (Croatia).
Future Epics, a project co-financed by EU funds which will be carried out by the Dubrovnik Summer Festival with partners during the next two years, was presented on 22 September, at the Festival Palace as part of Cultural Heritage Days in Dubrovnik 2018.
