ARGOS is a collaborative European project between partners from different but complementary backgrounds (researchers, artists, cultural workers, students and spectators). It participates in the Programme ‘Creative Europe Cooperation Projects – Culture’, 2018-2021, and is financed by the European Union. It forms a part of the innovative cultural projects of Relais Culture Europe. The aim of the project is to create a new community of observers that studies the practice of creation and builds a polyphonic narrative that will interpret the cross-cutting dynamics developed during the creative process in the field of performing arts.
The ARGOS project borrows its name from Greek mythology and, as its logo implies, it refers to Argus the Panoptes, the sleepless, forever alert giant with a hundred eyes and panoramic vision. Thus, the ARGOS project aspires to function as a multi-observatory in which the eyes of researchers, artists, cultural workers and spectators of contemporary performance arts meet and encompass the broad visual field of the creative process.
