Galleri Image is a part of PARALLEL Photo Based Platform

Galleri Image are taking part in the project; PARALLEL: European Photo Based Platform started in 2017. 

PARALLEL is an initiative supported by the European Commission through the cultural programme Creative Europe.
 
PARALLEL is a project consisting of an international network of organisations and art institutions across Europe. It was first started by the Portuguese organisation Procur.arte. 

The platform is partly established in order to strengthen cooperation in the European art world as well as an opportunity to create contact between young, emerging artists and curators and help them develop. Therefore, the beginning of the project was marked by a number of artist and curator residencies which later on will result in different exhibitions. 

The work between artists and curators are combined with a network of various institutions and is dedicated to bettering the relationship between art schools, museums, and festivals. This is based on the project's goal of establishing an effective platform for the exhibition of the work of young artists and curators throughout Europe.

PARALLEL consists of 18 collaborators across Europe.
The projekt will be held during the period 2017-2021.

PARALLEL'S first year ended with meetings and exhibition during the photofestival ORGAN VIDA in Zagreb in the beginning of September, 2018. The foundational plans for the coming year of exhibitiond and meetings were also planned during ORGAN VIDA - the coming program also features an exhibition at Galleri Image in August, 2019. The first PARALLEL meeting in 2019 takes places at the Format Festival in Derby.
