Art Mine is a young multicultural NGO based in Austria serving the public interest and common good. We promote art, culture, cultural diversity, interculturality and intercultural dialogue. Since its founding in 2014 Art Mine has frequently organised activities in the field of culture. For one of its main art projects called “See the Big Picture” it asked artists and photographers from all around the globe, both professionals and hobbyists, to share their view on the world and create pictures that depict their unique perspective. Apart from art exhibitions Art Mine also established a very successful music series called “Tower of Songs” that hosts national and international artists from different genres.
In 2019, Art Mine started another cultural project with a particular focus on regional development by revitalizing the old grain mill ‘Simon Mühle’. Putting the historic building back to use – providing cultural treats like readings, exhibitions and concerts – the place soon became one of the most vivid emblems of the city. The mill does not only function as a workplace for the team but also provides an important space for the local community. In addition to its cultural activities Art Mine has hosted and participated in a variety of Erasmus+ mobilities in Key Action 1, such as Youth Exchanges, and has had five participants from European Solidarity Corps so far.
