The project’s vision is to promote cross-cultural exchange through the development of visual arts, performance and music arts projects. The Same Rain, The Same Wind« is an artist-led initiative that offers a significant alternative art-space for artists across the world to nurture creative and imaginative art practice, based on artistic exchange, discourse, and debate. The project works at the nexus of arts, culture, human rights, environment, and strives to encourage broad-based critical reflection and catalyse social action. The platform offers an intensive researching opportunity for artists/creators focusing on the creative process during two-week workshops. In the closing week the participating artists would present their works. One of the priorities is a collaboration to encourage knowledge, sharing within the country of operation. A part of the concept is based on the relocation of the project in a way that every odd year it would be held in Grožnjan (Istria, Croatia), as a biennale, and each even year in different parts of the world. This is why the art works are encouraged to be site-specific. »The Same Rain, The Same Wind« is not a movement where the goal is to give an answer, but an action that opens questions.
