The project is implemented by a Consortium led by Khora, the world’s first combined virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) production house based in Copenhagen. The consortium is joined by Les Anneaux de la Mémoire, France’s leading association working with the themes of the history and heritage of the Atlantic trade of enslaved people and colonial enslavement; Pro Progressione, a Budapest-based artistic hub specialising in international collaborations in the field of culture; Gerador, an independent Portuguese platform for journalism, culture and education; and CUMEDIAE, a Brussels based international non-profit agency providing consultancy services in the field of CCIs European wide.
The team is joined by the Advisory Board, consisting of scientific, arts and civil society representatives from nine different countries representing research centres, universities, museums and various associations. They will ensure the Project’s historical, identity and scientific integrity. Finally, the Artistic Committee will ensure the artistic quality of the selected projects.
This team combines tested expertise in the cultural sector, most respected capacity in the digital audiovisual field of AR/VR applied to arts and heritage, work with visual and performing arts and in the direct cooperation with artists, and background in the historical and social dimension of the transatlantic trade of enslaved people.
