Motion Mode of Dialogue in Tirol - Association of visual and performative art

Vision: Embracing the vibrant spirit of Tirol, we envision a cultural landscape where visual and performative art intertwine to create a dynamic tapestry that reflects the essence of dialogue through motion. Our vision is to cultivate an environment where artistic expressions transcend boundaries, fostering a rich and inclusive artistic community.

Mission: "Motion Mode of Dialogue in Tirol" is dedicated to advancing visual and performative art by providing a platform for artists to explore the convergence of motion and dialogue. Through exhibitions, performances, and collaborative projects, our mission is to ignite conversations, spark creativity, and celebrate the diverse voices that contribute to the cultural mosaic of Tirol. We strive to be a catalyst for artistic growth, fostering connections that bridge tradition and innovation in the ever-evolving landscape of artistic expression.
