The Company is a not-for-profit organisation established to:

Stimulate the exploration of new art forms by fostering interdisciplinary collaborations and international artistic exchange;
Develop activities based on cross-fertilisation between different art forms and disciplines, aesthetic experimentation and technological innovation;
Deliver educational activities and community engagement programmes through the arts and the use of new media;
Engage diverse audiences nationally and internationally and promote social cohesion, intergenerational dialogues and intercultural exchange;
Promote research and development into any aspect of the objectives of the Company and its work and disseminate the results of any such research for the public benefit.
The organisation is currently developing an educational and outreach programme called "The Living Archeology of the Place" as part of "Streets of...", an international visual arts project which explores the everyday life of seven cities around the world to uncover the traces left in the human body by three migratory journeys - the Indo European migrations, the Transatlantic Slave Trade, and the Silk Road.
“Streets of…” was first conceived by Alda Terracciano in 2004 and aims to be exhibited as a video audio installation in 2012 in London as part of the Cultural Olympiad, in conjunction with other international venues. "Streets of..." also aims to be presented in 2013 as part of the Universal Forum of Cultures in Naples (Italy). “The Living Archeology of the Place” programme is currently developed in collaboration with art galleries, community centers and educational organisations based in the seven cities that are explored in the “Streets of…” project, and will culminate in an exhibition of material recorded, submitted and produced by members of the communities, young people, international artists and the general public during its production.
The aim of the programme is to stimulate professional development and confidence in the participants, wider understanding of issues related to migration, and the creation of stronger links across generations. "The Living Archeology of the Place" exhibition will also increase older people's emotional well-being by giving them a sense of full participation in the creation of contemporary cultural trends. The exhibition and digital media labs created in each city will give an opportunity to the participants to take their ideas forward for new creative outcomes, while facilitating public debates on issues related to migration, arts and cultural diversity in the Europe.
