‘Erasmus on Scene’ is a European cultural and citizenship pioneer project. It was created at the University of Valencia (“Escena Erasmus European Theatre Project”) in 2009 with the aim of harnessing the creative and intercultural potential of the Erasmus community.
Our activities are targeted at both local and incoming international students, including the refugee community from each of the participating cities as well. The ‘Erasmus on Scene’ project is an excellent tool to launch a constant reflection of our continents reality through performing arts.
In addition, ‘Erasmus on Scene’ has managed to create a stable network of European cities that carry out the project: the Erasmus Europe on Scene Network has already been established in the cities of Valencia (its headquarters), Marburg, Padua, Cagliari, Lodz, Sofia, Pamplona and Seville and expects to include other cities as well.
The ‘Erasmus on Scene’ project has been operating for ten years, funded by its own headquarters, convinced and aware of its potential, its success and its viability.
This project represents a further step into European student mobility since it enables groups of European citizens to become protagonists in the cultural life of their hosting cities, showing the strength of different cultures within the EU.
The ‘Erasmus on Scene’ venues transmit the founding values of the European Union to rural areas through its program of theatrical tours and exchanges “The Small Europes”.
‘Erasmus on Scene’ manages to create a top-notch artistic creation space.4
