CAA has just embarked on another bold, interdisciplinary adventure! An Orchestra Network for Europe – ONE - is a distinctive network of classical symphony orchestras initiated by Orchestre de Picardie in 2003. Since 2005, it has received support from the European Union under the Culture Programme for 4 cultural projects. Its successive periods of activity have been called ONE, ONE - a new dimension, ONE step further and from June 2011 to 2015 ONE goes places. In 2010, under the title ONE is more, it prepared an application under the Creative Europe programme of the EU. For this bid, the University for the Creative Arts joined the partnership.
UCA was invited to participate in ONE following the success of a previous European-funded project - ACT (A Common Territory) - which saw staff, students and alumni from UCA's Computer Animation Arts, Creative Arts For Theatre Film, Television Productionand Graphic Design: Visual Communication collaborate with orchestras, performers and performances in France and in the UK. Following the success of our La création du monde animation project, ONE has asked the creative community of CAA to create an animation to accompany live concert performances of Benjamin BRITTERN’S Young Person’s Guide To The Orchestra.
