Project ABANDONED (working title) focuses on vacant and forgotten buildings, cultural and industrial heritage of the European Union of partner countries (minimum 4 target spaces). Using these spaces as inspiration based on their past (myths and legends, historical facts, historical personalities) project creates new content with the aim of revitalizing their meanings to European citizens by reviving their living spirits versus progressive and life-resisting - physical devastation.
Revitalization of the space would first start by exploring and finding interesting common motifs on which the project builds its performances. The programming and production process would primarily be focused on interaction with surrounding population, and through a participatory process project partners would generate works of art and creativity. In addition to having each of the partners have the opportunity to  test their own use for the space all partners together would work on a common piece designated for permanent in the vacant spaces. With selected leit-motives, partners would collaboratively produce one common space intervention in the form of multimedia content
The project deals with revitalization of cultural and industrial heritage and audience development.  
Music is the main driver of  revival of the “ghosts” of the past, but also the medium that creates contemporary performances in the authentic ambience of European abandoned heritage.
The goal of a small scale project is to examine the possibilities of revitalization and the possibility of a permanent display in the space.
The long-term goal of the project is to realize a permanent (virtual) setting (Immersive Art) and web platform.
All countries participating in Creative Europe program (preferably Italy, France, Germany).
