IRIS was a Nordic-Baltic short term network consisting of four art organisations and four artists. It aimed to strengthen complementarities between artists, festivals, institutions and audiences. The network went through a series of meetings throughout 2018 to get to know each other and the different contexts in which they work in order to propose a methodology on how organisations and artists can work together horizontally and have meaningful encounters with the audience.
