Biennale des jeunes créateurs de l’Europe et de la Méditerranée

BJCEM, Biennale des jeunes créateurs de l’Europe et de la Méditerranée, is an international Network founded in Sarajevo on July 2001. The Association has been created with the aim of giving an institutional frame and an organised management to the Biennale, event held for the first time in 1985 in Barcelona. Nowadays, the Network is composed by 56 members from 20 Countries gathering public bodies, state departments, foundations, municipalities, independent associations, cultural institutions. BJCEM has established collaborations with partners all over Europe, Middle East, Africa and more widely with organizations and projects focused on the Mediterranean Diaspora. BJCEM is member of the Anna Lindh Foundation and the Culture Action Europe network.
The aim of the Network is to create opportunities of training, mobility, exchange, mutual understanding, intercultural dialogue and collaboration among young artists.
Among the activities that BJCEM organises, the most important is the Biennale of Young Artists from Europe and the Mediterranean, an event that gathers together hundreds of young artists in a different city, showcasing their art in the various disciplines, such as cinema, music, food, art, theatre, dance and literature. BJCEM organised 17 Biennials throughout its 30 years activities: Barcelona (1985), Thessaloniki (1986), Barcelona (1987), Bologna (1988), Marseille (1990), Valencia (1992), Lisbon (1994), Turin (1997), Rome (1999), Sarajevo (2001), Athens (2003), Naples (2005), Puglia (2008), Skopje (2009), Thessaloniki / Rome (2011), Ancona (2013) and Milan (2015), involving more than 10.000 young artists and over 700.000 visitors.

The last edition of the Bienniale, Mediterranea 17 Young Artists Biennale, has been organised by BJCEM and the City of Milan in collaboration with Arci. It took place in Milan at Fabbrica del Vapore, 4 Procaccini Street, from October 22nd to November 22nd 2015, bringing together more than 300 artists. The event was included in the programe of the “EXPO in città” events.
