ALDATERRA Projects is a not for profit making company set up in 2010 by artist Alda Terracciano to deliver socially engaged activities within the field of visual and live arts, promote international exchange and collaborations, and deliver intergenerational and educational programmes. The organisation fosters the exploration of new artistic practises based on the cross-fertilisation between different art forms and disciplines and aims to engage diverse audiences through creative learning and participation. It works alongside its trading arm, ALDATERRA Productions, which will focus on the creation of high quality digital content for multi-platforms consumption, including mobile technology.
The company received support from Arts Council England to present Alda Terracciano’s video sound installation Streets of… 7 cities in 7 minutes alongside a programme of public creative engagement, the Living Archaeology of the Place, during the London Olympic games. The installation opened at the Greenwich Peninsula Festival (London) in summer 2012, was selected as part of the Urban Dialogues festival at the Red Gallery in November and is currently on display at Rich Mix until the end of January 2013 together with a selection of material from the Living Archaeology of the Place programme.
ALDATERRA Project is part of the Anna Lindh Foundation UK network and is currently developing a HLF funded project in a primary school in South London as part of its Living Archaeology of the Place programme.
