Interface of Science and Culture
The association is composed of three women that have been working together internationally since their studies in Ljubljana, Slovenia, in 2006/2007. To combine their existing competencies and perspectives and develope new ones they founded the cultural association “SEE.ID – In Dialogue with South-Eastern
Europe” in January 2009. As an interface between academia and cultural work at international level, the association wants to stimulate intercultural dialogue initiating projects around the subject South-Eastern Europe and the Southern Caucasus. Topics from culture, society, politics and history are put up for discussion to support the process of facing the past, to transform conflicts and to make a deep mutual understanding possible –within Europe and especially within South-Eastern and Eastern Europe. As a place for encounters a forum is being give to all those who are interested in the region by work or by personal intention. The projects are being realised in the form of documentary film projects, publications, seminars at university and cultural centres, workshops with migrants, networks, internet platforms and conference contributions.
We stand for an open multicultural society in Europe, based on democratic and humanistic principles. We oppose radical or nationalist ideologies and positions. The association is based on multicultural, critical and feminist principles, thus special attention lies on the situation of women and on the promotion of women in art & culture throught networking. We are committed to a peaceful co-existence within Europe.
Our work focuses on Southeastern and Eastern Europe with emphasis on the countries of the Western Balkans and on the Southern Caucasus. We want to promote a mutual understanding between people of different regions and social positions. That is why we network with associations and institutions that focus on intercultural, educational and feminist issues. Our aim is to stimulate an exchange on our common history, on finding ways of dealing with the past and on ideas for solidarity and political participation.
