CooProg aims to lower the carbon footprint of artists’ and audiences’ mobility by allowing programmers to share and identify converging projects to achieve time- and geography-efficient touring.

The open-source and free platform allows programmers to share project plans, to identify converging ideas in their circle of partners and to work on putting together a geographically and temporally coherent tour. It accomplishes this goal in a self-managed and unmoderated space.

During the CooProg launch phase scheduled to run until March 2024, people who programme live performances in structures located in Belgium, France, Germany, Luxembourg and Switzerland will be able to register.

CooProg is an ONDA (office national de diffusion artistique) project supported by the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia, the City of Esch-sur-Alzette, l’Oeuvre nationale de Secours Grande-Duchesse Charlotte and the Association des Scènes Nationales.
