  • Description

    Description

    Proponiamo e ospitiamo iniziative di carattere artistico, culturale e sociale, sempre con un tocco di originalità, offrendo un'alternativa al divertimento tradizionale e portando in scena la possibilità di un impegno responsabile e creativo.
    Fra le attività principali degli ultimi anni: residenze d'artista durante l'estate (pittura, scultura, fotografia, arte contemporanea), mostre, rassegne cinematografiche, musica, corsi e laboratori artigianali, baratto e libero scambio, progetti di ricerca socio-culturale. I nostri soci sono ora coinvolti in un progetto di durata triennale di ricerca e produzione artistica. In alcuni periodi accogliamo anche ospiti (non artisti) come B&B.
    Lo spazio è un felice esempio di archeologia industriale riconvertita in centro di produzione artistica e promozione culturale i cui camaleontici spazi si trasformano ad hoc per ospitare diverse iniziative (workshop, laboratori, esposizioni, lecture) capaci di coinvolgere la popolazione locale in un percorso creativo-culturale formativo e stimolante.

    --------
    WE offer and host artistic initiatives, cultural and social, always with a touch of originality, offering an alternative to the traditional fun and bringing on stage the possibility of a responsible and creative engagement.
    Among the main activities of recent years: artist residencies during the summer (painting, sculpture, photography, contemporary art), exhibitions, film festivals, music, courses and workshops, bartering and free trade, social and cultural research projects .
    Sometimes we even guest people (no artists) as B & B.
    If your are an artist we have a special sharing proposal, a project room for temporary int'l guests (our open calls are for italian artiss only)...so part of your help shoud be for promoting our center thoughout the making of an extemporaneous little event with your artworks/show or lecture + maybe some extras by one of our members.


    Our space is a successful example of industrial archeology converted into a center for artistic production and cultural promotion whose chameleon-like spaces are transformed specifically to accommodate various initiatives (workshops, workshops, exhibitions, lecture) capable of involving the local population in a creative-cultural journey educational and inspiring.
