THE AIM OF TABUROPA IS …
… To encourage people in the participating countries to think about existing taboos, how they operate and the impacts that they have in everyday life.
… To facilitate the breaking of taboos in a real and aesthetic sense by having artists explore them as well as to promote active participation and an open, stimulating debate about alleged taboos via creative and original artistic endeavours.
… To promote the comprehension and awareness of taboos as a manifestation of European diversity and thereby to stabilise the European integration process.
… To create a platform where European artists with different approaches to their work and styles can meet and work together.
… To bring together cultural organizations from different European countries, to develop networks and to stimulate new cooperative projects, so as to promote the emergence of a pan-European cultural practice.
… To record and collate the experiences made during the work on the project and its results so as to stimulate an ongoing debate.
