LANDXCAPES art, storytelling, landscape | SELECTION RESULTS
Residency program in Puglia, October 8th-19th, 2018

The International Association BJCEM – Biennale des Jeunes Créateurs de l’Europe et de la Méditerranée and Puglia Region promote the special project LandXcapes, dedicated to the changes suffered by the territory of Puglia due to the epidemic breakout of the bacterium Xylella fastidiosa, which has affected entire plantations of olive trees in the Region.

LandXcapes is a multidisciplinary cultural project of integrated enhancement of the identity and heritage of Salento, through the language of art, storytelling and landscape. The Provinces of Brindisi, Lecce, and Taranto have been stricken by Xylella scourge, and have now to deal with their identities. Art becomes therefore a tool of reflection and sharing of a fragile moment, linked in a substantial (and anthropological) way to the future life of the Salento territory. Art as a meeting point of two worlds: the productive one, and the cultural one. In the middle there is the territory, the landscape, a legacy to be delivered to future generations.

This Call is open to the following disciplines:

Performance, Tutor Salvatore Tramacere; Storytelling, Tutor Luigi D’Elia; Design, Tutor Crispino Lanza; Video/photography, Tutor Michela Cerini; Public art/land art, Tutor Mauro Lazzari, Laura Basco; Visual art (picture/sculpture), Tutor Sarah Ciracì

A Natural Oasis? | SELECTION RESULTS

BJCEM is happy to announce that the selection process of the third edition of “A Natural Oasis? A Transnational Research Program” is now completed.  We have received 32 applications from Cyprus, Greece, San Marino and UK, and, considering the high quality of the profiles, the curators Alessandro Castiglioni and Simone Frangi have decided to increase from six to seven the number of selected young curators. Here are the names of the selected ones:

Cyprus: Theodoulos Polyviou, Denise Araouzou;
Greece:
Panos Giannikopoulos, Angeliki Tzortzakaki, Nicolas Vamvouklis;

The selected practitioners, together with the two senior curators Alessandro Castiglioni, Simone Frangi, will participate to STEP 1 of the project in Palermo, a two-day open seminar (July 24-26) included among the collateral events of Manifesta Biennial. The seminar will be hosted in partnership with Viasaterna gallery, in its brand new temporary space CASINO PALERMO, an ancient and charming palazzo situated in the heart of the historic Kalsa neighbourhood, at number 129 of Via Alloro. A space that brings together exhibition events and residencies in the dimension of the on-going atelier, planned and curated by the gallery.

A Natural Oasis? is the third edition of a two-year transnational research training school aimed at creating occasions for critical reflection and professionalization for young researchers, artists and curators, a project designed, promoted and supported, since its first edition, by the Republic of San Marino, Ministry for Education and Culture, Department of Culture and Tourism – Cultural Institutes, in collaboration with the University of the Republic of San Marino in the context of the Biennale of Young Artists from Europe and the Mediterranean.

After Palermo, next STEPS of the project will be held in UK, Greece, Cyprus, San Marino. This path of the curatorial team will lead to the conceptualisation of the 19° edition of the Biennale of Young Artists from Europe and the Mediterranean, scheduled for 2020 in San Marino.

The third edition of “A Natural Oasis” is promoted and developed by:
BJCEM-Biennale of Young Artists from Europe and the Mediterranean; Republic of San Marino-Ministry of Education and Culture, Department of Culture and Tourism, Cultural Institutes – San Marino National Gallery; San Marino University; UK Young Artists; Republic of Cyprus-Ministry of Education and Culture, Cultural Service; Republic of Greece-Hellenic Ministry of Education, Research & Religious Affairs / General Secretariat for Youth Policies & Lifelong Learning

International Summer School on Migration and Asylum: Labour Integration of Migrants and Refugees

BJCEM is proudly media partner of the International Summer School on Migration and Asylum: Labour Integration of Migrants and Refugees, organised by Africa e Mediterraneo. The new 2018 edition of the International Summer School (9-14/07/2018, Bologna – IT) will focus on economic integration of migrants and refugees in European Member States. Professors and experts from prestigious Universities and Institutions (United Nations University, Yale University, European Commission, EMN, EHESP among others) will train 50 international participants in a 6-day full-time immersion where the multidisciplinary approach and theory will be strongly supported by practice and case studies analysis. Indeed, after a few years of monopolizing the issue of “landings” and the organization of reception, the issue of professional integration of migrants and asylum seekers in Europe is beginning to take hold, recognizing that participation in the labour market is the most important step towards successful integration into host societies.
