To support new projects of design for art shops and bookshops and to facilitate the international mobility of young Italian artists in all disciplines.
These are the objectives of DE.MO., a work programme that thanks to the renewed partnership between the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities and Tourism - General Directorate for Contemporary Art and Architecture and Urban Suburbs (ex PaBAAC) - General Directorate for Museums (ex DG VAL) - General Directorate for Performance (ex DG SV) and GAI - Association for the Circuit of Young Italian Artists, also for the biennium 2015-2016 will offer concrete opportunities to young people who operate with professional objectives in the different sectors of the arts, design and performing arts, providing them with real opportunities for growth.
DE.MO. + is a project directed towards young creatives between 18 and 35 years of age conceived as a platform of interventions finalised at the valorisation and the promotion of the work of Italian artists in an international context, to the support of the projects that are more interesting from the point of view of innovation and design and to the creation of new employment outlets and professional figures.
The success of the previous editions and the constant interest from the emerging artistic world demonstrates how over time the project has become an institutional reference of the sector.
In the next two years the traditional lines of action will be strengthened through different actions to maximize the results: the web diary with mobility experiences, occasions of visibility, special awards, etc.
Some initiatives will be planned to collect and provide answers to the needs of the different actors involved in mobility, cultural production and design, at national and international level, with the possible involvement of other central and local institutions as well as private partners .
