Translocalia was founded in 2014 with the support of the Royal College of Art in London, the Embassy of Brazil and the Italian Cultural Institute in UK, the World Congress of Overseas Pakistanis.
Our supporters include the i-Portunus Houses pilot scheme, which is implemented, on behalf of the European Commission, by a consortium of organisations that have been pioneers of European cultural mobility programmes themselves. Coordinated by the European Cultural Foundation (Amsterdam), the i-Portunus Houses consortium involves MitOst (Berlin) as main mobility implementer and the Kultura Nova Foundation (Zagreb) as lead in evaluation and analysis.
The network has collaborated with institutions such as MACBA Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art, Instituto Tomie Ohtake, the National College of Arts in Lahore and he Dutch Media Art Friesland, FELTproject, OsloMet, Nicoletta Fiorucci Foundation, Mimosa House, Laboral Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial, Instituto Mutante de Narrativas Ambientales and many others.
From 2021 Translocalia is Partner of the New European Bauhaus, which proposes a new framework to work together and make the Green Deal a tangible experience.
