Project summary: 

NECT’ARTS is a transnational cooperation project (TNC) between three wine-producing regions: Uzège-Pont du Gard (south of France), Cotes des Bar, Champagne (north east of France) and Tinutul Vinului (Romania). For the three partners, wine-growing is of major importance to their local economy.

This TNC project involved a series of actions to connect local know-how (savoir-faire) and engage artistic creativity in relation to wine production (using artist residencies). This was done by comparing and exchanging experiences, promoting wine production and organising study visits and exchanges between wine-producers.

Project results: 

To date, four delegations have visited the two French areas.

Two artist residencies have been organised.

Two events were organised to promote the wine sector of the French regions in an innovative way (through artistic co-creation and exhibitions on the theme of wine).
