ArTVision is a project that promotes interactive, cultural and inter-institutional innovation among all Adriatic and European countries. The aim is to give maximum visibility to artworks, locally produced but with a high communicative value at international level, so as to make them accessible to a wide audience.
The innovation is in the aspiration to transmediality and cross-border cooperation inherent in the project, which aims to create a thematic transmedia channel offering high quality cultural content and originality on a wide spectrum of contemporary visual arts. A channel that exploits communications networks and media infrastructures already existing in partner countries and allows free use of the project audiovisual productions.
