How to sustain long term collaborations with professionals and their communities I meet over the course of a short-term international project.
Through my life and international work,I have collected precious knowledge about the topic of my interest,most notably through failure.I have worked incredibly talented people from all over the world,only to lose our professional contact once the project is over.I have some ideas about how to develop a framework for a continuous collaboration with the help of some institutions that would be willing to test this. The basic idea revolves around the creation of informal "companies" of professionals that can work as collectives in parallel in two different countries,connecting deeper with each other and their communities, while also "forcing" the funding institution in one country to seek,establish and sustain collaboration with a funding institution in the other country.
A model of sustainable long-term collaboration among international peers of all levels through bilateral or multi-lateral programs that run in parallel, has the potential to create deepen relationships among individuals and communities while also creating precious knowledge about the contexts in which the programs are realized. Working internationally does not necessarily allow time for knowledge exchange, as this is a social process that requires time and opportunities for creative "friction". Flanders seems to be a culturally suitable place for such ideas to be incubated and a place that could act as a port for international collaborations on all levels;a hub for long-term social processes that nurture the sense of co-existence and togetherness in the cultural field.

The digital work in the arts interests me as a possibility to form new collaborative alliances with ancestral communities today isolated or difficult to access, whose knowledge and practices with nature can inspire us in the imagination of new necessary life forms, possible to be disseminated on a global scale.
Since I've moved to France, skyping with my parents is one of the most vital acts . My parents yawn often when we Skype and as yawning is contagious, I can’t stop yawning myself even we are facing two screens. We consider the digital encounter as an alternative way, lacking compared to a physical meeting but still we can find this signals a beautiful moment in human interconnectivity.
