We present Pre- Bapore Atelier as a cultural service that mediates between the current artistic community and residents of Enkarterri. By providing workshops/studios and production aid, the goal is to create an ecosystem of creation and relationships that brings us all together, with the richness of welcoming artists and artistic researchers from multiple disciplines. Different forms of artistic expression will be supported and fostered with the goal of establishing a sign of identity through diversity. As one of the project's priorities, Bapore Atelier will organise educational dynamics for rapprochement and understanding to create connections between the invited artists and researchers, and the Enkarterri community.
