The goal of the project is to have an useful tool for a transcultural
dialogue and a platform to interconnect the alternative or independent
movements (artists and spaces) with other geographical scenarios in order to
create and spread cultural exchange networks.

Massana School of Fine Arts in Barcelona. Her career as a graphic designer
brought her to multimedia studios in Paris, Wrexam and New York. Since 2004
she has been involved with social movements and several political arts
projects in Barcelona. She was one of the founders of the collective
Eclectica dv, a non-profit arts organization that wants to promote the use
