LANDXCAPE art, storytelling, landscape | PROGRAM ONLINE
Residency program in Puglia, October 8th-19th, 2018

LandXcape is a multidisciplinary cultural project of integrated enhancement of the identity and landscape heritage of Salento, promoted by Puglia Region in collaboration with Teatro Pubblico Pugliese and the International Association BJCEM – Biennale des Jeunes Créateurs de l’Europe et de la Méditerranée.
Through artistic and narrative forms, landXcape wants to stimulate in the public and on the territory a reflection on the meaning of the (voluntary and involuntary) transformation of the landscape, in a multidisciplinary and intersectoral approach.
A project in which art becomes a meeting place between two worlds, the productive and the cultural ones, as well as a keystone to produce a vision of the future of the Salento landscape that embraces the provinces of Brindisi, Lecce and Taranto, hit by the scourge of the Xylella, which are now dealing with their own identities.

Artistic residences
LandXcape provides a program of artistic residences, within six different parks of Salento (Parco Dune Costiere – Ostuni; Parco Torre Guaceto – Brindisi; Parco Otranto/Leuca – Otranto; Parco Litorale di Ugento – Ugento; Parco Porto Selvaggio – Gallipoli; Litorale Tarantino – Manduria).
Under the supervision of six professional tutors, 60 artists selected by BJCEM through an international call and coming from 22 countries will closely work with the territory, interfacing with farmers, olive producers, inhabitants of the affected areas, scholars and researchers.
Divided into groups corresponding to 6 different artistic disciplines (Performance, Storytelling, Design, Video/Photography, Public art/Land art, Painting/Sculpture), artists will be involved in creative and productive workshops. At the end of the residences moments of public restitution of the resulsts will take place.

Dialogues on the Landscape
The “Dialogues on the landscape” section is one of the activities of landXcape project and involves all project partners, local operators, trade associations, cultural and social promotion associations. The “Dialogues” will welcome and articulate the requests coming from these subjects, together with the experts and all the so-called privileged interlocutors of the territory.
7 meetings will be organized in the form of technical tables, seminars, workshops, where it will be possible to develop reflections, initiate discussions and share information on the theme of the transformation of the landscape and the cultures that inhabit it.
The dialogues are hosted by the 6 parks involved in the project and are related to the territorial specificity of each one, also in line with the artistic residency activities to be carried out in each park. The last dialogue will be held at the Biblio-Museale pole in Brindisi, together with all the artists in residence.

Shows
A program of narrative events in nature on the theme of landscape and land, which will accompany the development of the residence by creating a context of listening and storytelling of the memory of places, in a low-tech and wellness mode within the parks involved.

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
