European Commission’s project WeAre#EuropeForCulture is partnering with Photoconsortium’s network to organize participatory events in various European cities, with the aim of creating exhibitions that include both institutional and crowdsourced heritage and which celebrate the diversity of European cultural heritage, by engaging citizens in the co-creation of cultural experiences. The series of exhibitions is a legacy from the activities of the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018.
This exhibition is the Lithuanian instance of the WeAre#EuropeForCulture series, and it was co-created in collaboration with art students from Naujoji Vilnia district, with various creative sessions before the exhibtion launch which will continue afterwards. The exhibtion is focused on stories and family memories of the Vilnius main street Didžioji.
The exhibition premiered on 27th September at the Vilnius Picture Gallery and will stay on display in conjunction with another exhibition about the old Vilnius until January 2020
