Since 2005, the international ROOTS & ROUTES network has successfully implemented 12 multiannual transnational projects funded by programmes such as ERASMUS+, Culture, Fundamental Rights and Citizenship, Leonardo da Vinci and Grundtvig.
Organisations that join the ROOTS & ROUTES International Association (RRIA) as a member get the chance to participate in transnational projects, to send young artists to international exchange projects hosted by other RRIA members, and to organise on national activities under the ROOTS & ROUTES brand.
The international ROOTS & ROUTES network focuses on exchange projects for young artists, development of training programmes and curricula for young artists and on the combination of social and artistic action, especially in the field of cultural diversity and anti-discrimination.
Transnational ROOTS & ROUTES projects have lead to perfomances at reknown festivals such as Sziget (Budapest/Hungary), Summerjam (Cologne/Germany), Hipnotik (Barcelona/Spain) and Fabbrica Europa (Florence/Italy), and events such as the 300 anniversary of the Utrecht peace treaty or the EU Youth on the Move campaign.
The ROOTS & ROUTES International Association provides access to a network of enthusiastic organisations active in the fields of arts and culture, youth, artist development, cultural diversity, antidiscrimination and societal cohesion.
