INTERNATIONAL SEMINAR + SPECIAL EVENT

 

After Turin (June 2012), Ferrara (November 2013) and Lecce (December 2013), Naples will be hosting in September 2014 the Universal Forum of Cultures. The programme of the Forum features, among other events, a national workshop designed to assess the progress made by spaces, institutions, associations and young independent companies dealing with culture in Italy and abroad and, by taking stock of the experience of Italian cities, to promote the circulation of ideas, best practices and new networks pertaining to urban regeneration.

REMIXING CITIES – Urban ReGeneration and Independent Centres of Cultural Production is a two-session event presented by GAI – Association for the Circuit of the Young Italian Artists and the ICS Association – Innovation Culture Society co-produced by Universal Forum of Cultures – Naples and Campania in collaboration with the Municipalities of Reggio Emilia, Ferrara and Padova.

The objective of this workshop is to define a roadmap of the interactions between Centers of Independent Cultural Production and Public Institutions, that takes into account the issues raised so far: to reclaim and bring new life into the territories – a very critical issue today -  by granting, as a first step of a complex process, young independent cultural companies the employment of some unused spaces.

The range of projects carried out in these spaces deal with culture and youth, but also with city planning, production activities and social services. In this framework, the Centers can kick-off a long and complex dynamic process: young creativity as a tool for a new cross-eyed vision that allows you to re-look at a place still architecturally frozen, but holding the promise of new future purposes.

A process that has to necessarily contend with bureaucratic procedures and hurdles until the long overdue new and simpler laws and regulations are approved.

The workshop is an international meeting open to the public with professionals, artists, local administrators brainstorming and sharing know-how, striving to define a new course of action for future improvement of the status quo.

The agenda includes two working sessions followed by a SPECIAL EVENT: a night performance featuring a slide show of iconic sites and artworks projected on the walls of some of Naples landmarks, with live music and DJs.

Key words: #URBAN REGENERATION AND CULTURAL PRODUCTION #AN INTERNATIONAL DIMENSION TO BUILD NEW ALLIANCES #SIMPLIFICATION OF THE NORMATIVE SYSTEM #MANAGEMENT MODELS AND GOVERNANCE OF CENTRES #ECONOMIC SUSTAINABILITY AND SOCIAL REPERCUSSIONS
