In September 2011, Fresh Tracks Europe (FTE) started its first programme ‘New Artistic Identities’.  The two-year project was supported by the Cultural Programme of the European Community with the aim to support 40 choreographers from the youth dance circuit in Europe in their individual artistic development and share the results with audiences throughout Europe.  New Artistic Identities (NAI) was set up to promote the international dialogue between EU dance artists from the youth dance circuit.  The choreographers were supported in their artistic development, contributing to long-term relationships between them and stimulating collaborations with the aim to create a European international context for their work and support for their future activities.  NAI also involved theatre presenters/promoters, schools, art educators and audiences (both parents and children) in the programme during local events and festivals, so both choreographers and partners gained visibility and support on a European scale.

New Artistic Identities consisted of four 10-day encounters in Utrecht, Gent, Düsseldorf  and Vienna and three smaller events in Malmo, Edinburgh and Talinn.  The partners were:
Het Lab Utrecht (Netherlands)
Kopergietery (Belgium)
Dschungel Wien (Austria)
tanzhaus nrw (Germany)
Dansstationen (Sweden)
Sõltumatu Tantsu Ühendus (Estonia)
Åbendans (Denmark) and
Imaginate (Scotland).
Associated festival partners were Krokus Festival,  Szene Bunte Wähne andTweetakt

In 2013 the second step of FTE started with the international dance festival for young audience HOMMIK in Tallinn Estonia Nov26th- Dec 7th together with the Fresh Tracks Europe regular encounter.

12 choreographers from all over Europe came together to Tallinn Estonia for a seven day encounter and workshop, led by Estonian choreographer, stage director and dancer Kaja Kann. The main theme and focus of the workshop was on collaborations between different artists – choreographers, dancers, actors etc. – to exchange ideas, experiences and knowledge. The main goal was to enable an interesting and intensive time to meet different artists from different parts of Europe – getting inspired by each other, getting some new tools and new viewpoints

Sõltumatu Tantsu Ühendus as the Estonian partner of FTE  was the coordinator of Tallinn encounter.

The main activity of Fresh Tracks Europe network in 2013-2015 was the Estonian FTE encounter what brought together 34 local and international dance artists and 7 international producers interested of the dialogue with young audience. The all program was followed by 700 viewers.

The seminar program involved the dance creation for a young audience.

The main effect was that the encounter brought together considerable amount of experts in dance for a young audience into Estonia and created the possibility to show the internationally approved dance performances and get the feedback for the local dance creation.

During 2014 -2016 several international residencies happened in Malmö (Dansstationen), Roskilde (Aabedans) and Tallinn (Sõltumatu Tantsu Ühendus)  to make the communication possible between the artists.
