MOVIN’UP 2012 - International mobility for young Italian artists
Thanks to the success of the previous events and to a renewed partnership between the General Direction for landscape, fine arts, architecture and contemporary arts - Ministry for Assets and Cultural Activities and GAI – Association of the Circuit of Young Italian Artists, the contest Movin’Up will keep promoting also during the two-year period 2010-2012 the international circulation of rising Italian artists, in the framework of the project DE.MO. - supporting new design for art shop and bookshop and international mobility of young Italian artists.
Movin’Up is a contest addressed to young creative artists aged 18 to 35 years, professionally oriented and who have gained entrance or have been officially invited abroad by cultural authorities, festivals, public and private corporations to contests, residences, seminars, workshops, internships or similar ventures. Also included those who plan to carry out artistic productions based in centers or institutions abroad.
The aim of the project is to promote the work of Italian talents giving them concrete opportunities to share their art, providing them with a real chance to participate in international events and prestigious training programmes with artistic and professional growth potential. This idea stems from the need to support the production of the projects that stand out from the innovation and cross-discipline point of view, so as to enhance the international circulation our national artistic pursuits.
The project, based on the allocation of an annual fund, allows artists to claim a grant to cover part of the travel expenses, and/or room, and/or production in the host city abroad. The eligible sectors are the following: visual arts, architecture, design, music, cinema, video, theatre, dance, performance, and writing.
