BANDO PER LA SELEZIONE DI 10 GIOVANI MILANESI

Lasciare il segno è un progetto rivolto ai giovani del territorio Milanese di età compresa tra i 18 e i 35 anni, interessati ad affrontare attraverso il fumetto i temi del contrasto al razzismo e alla xenofobia, con particolare attenzione per l’area Mediterranea.
Il progetto prevede la selezione di 10 giovani, per partecipare gratuitamente a un laboratorio condotto dal fumettista Federico Manzone, della durata complessiva di 10 ore, il cui obiettivo sarà riflettere, comprendere e interrogarsi sulla realtà dell’immigrazione oggi in Italia e in Europa e formare giovani che possano utilizzare il proprio talento a favore di una cultura antirazzista e inclusiva.

Gli obiettivi del progetto sono:

  • Incoraggiare il dialogo interculturale e promuovere una cultura antirazzista tra le giovani generazioni;
  • accrescere la coscienza e la conoscenza critica dei giovani sul fenomeno delle migrazioni e sul diritto d’asilo, in relazione al particolare fenomeno migratorio che sta vivendo l’Italia in questi ultimi anni;
  • promuovere l’emersione di giovani artisti interessati ad affrontare i temi del contrasto al razzismo e alle discriminazioni attraverso la disciplina artistica del fumetto, offendo loro opportunità di sviluppo per la propria carriera.

Lasciare il segno è un progetto realizzato, con il sostegno del Comune di Milano, da BJCEM-Biennale des jeunes créateurs de l’Europe et de la Méditerranée e da Africa e Mediterraneo.

Possono candidarsi giovani di età compresa tra i 18 e i 35 anni, residenti o domiciliati nella Città di Milano, la scadenza è il 15 Novembre 2017 26 Novembre 2017 a mezzanotte.

12th edition of ARTEFATTO | The call is OPEN

Il Comune di Trieste – Area Educazione, Scuola, Cultura e Sport – avvia il progetto biennale denominato CHROMOPOLIS_la città del futuro, che sostiene la creatività dei giovani 18/30 attraverso i linguaggi dell’Arte Urbana.

Attraverso le azioni di CHROMOPOLIS, il Comune di Trieste si propone di:

– rigenerare alcune aree cittadine [superfici pubbliche e in prospettiva anche private];
– coinvolgere i giovani attivando partenariati con soggetti che operano nel campo della creatività urbana e mobilità giovanile;
– attivare un processo di formazione dei giovani per valorizzare gli aspetti professionalizzanti della creatività under 35;
– contrastare i fenomeni di vandalismo offrendo delle alternative espressive concrete e individuando in modo condiviso muri destinati alla libera creatività;
– valorizzare la città di Trieste dal punto di vista turistico attraverso la creazione di un percorso che arricchisca gli spazi urbani.

In questa cornice, una delle azioni di maggiore impatto è la 12.a edizione di ARTEFATTO, progetto curato dal PAG – Progetto Area Giovani del Comune di Trieste, affermato a livello internazionale che promuove la creatività e la mobilità di giovani artisti.
La 12.a edizione di ARTEFATTO, denominata SeetheSea, si avvarrà della collaborazione e della supervisione dello street artista Davide ERON Salvadei e della direzione artistico organizzativa di Mattia Campo Dall’Orto dell’associazione Macross.

ARTEFATTO fa parte dei network del GAI – Associazione per il Circuito dei Giovani Artisti Italiani_www.giovaniartisti.it, della BJCEM – Association Internationale pour la Biennale des Jeunes Créateurs d’Europe et de la Méditerranée_www.bjcem.org ed è promosso attraverso la piattaforma digitale di INWARD – Osservatorio sulla Creatività Urbana_www.inward.it

Through the actions of CHROMOPOLIS, the Municipality of Trieste proposes to:
– revive a number of urban areas [public and potentially also private areas]
– involve young people by implementing partnerships with players involved in the field of urban creativity and youth mobility;
– activate a youth training process to enhance the aspects of creativity in under 35-year-olds that are potentially career-forming;
– fight against vandalism by offering real alternatives for expression and jointly identifying walls destined for free creativity;
– promote the city of Trieste from the point of view of tourism through the creation of an itinerary that enriches the urban spaces.

In this framework, one of the most important actions is the 12th edition of ARTEFATTO, a project administered by the PAG – Progetto Area Giovani (Youth Projects) of the Municipality of Trieste, which is affirmed at an international level and promotes the creativity and mobility of young artists.
The 12th edition of ARTEFATTO will be called SeetheSea, and will make use of the collaboration and supervision of street artist Davide ERON Salvadei_www.eron.it and of the artistic direction and organisation of Mattia Campo Dall’Orto of Macross association _www.mattiacampodallorto.it.
