An Atlas of Rocky Landscape
Itinerant residency between Matera and Montescaglioso
Matera European Capital of Culture 2019 Residences program

Deadline for submissions:
July 21th 2019, 11pm (Italian time)
 

The project

“An atlas of the rocky landscape” is part of the Matera European Capital of Culture 2019 Residences Program, created by the ARCI Basilicata and financed by the Matera-Basilicata 2019 Foundation. The project involves a residency with the aim of constructing a visual narration of the rocky landscape between Matera and Montescaglioso, in Italy.

The landscape of the Murgia of Matera is populated by innumerable places of worship excavated in the rocks, populated for centuries by religious groups, pilgrims and hermits. The secular relationship and the cohabitation between man and harsh nature represents an important basis of suggestions for the realization of a residency that is based on the need to practice the territory and narrate it.

The residency will also be an opportunity to activate some meetings on drawing and illustration with a group of asylum seekers and refugees hosted by the homeless shelter SPRAR, managed by Arci Basilicata.

The collection of stories and images, fantasies and fairy tales of oral narration, will compose the background for the creation of a small atlas, a reconnaissance of stones, stories and hidden legends.

The results of the residency will be presented in a final exhibition and will be the subject of an ad hoc editorial project.

The evaluation process of the project BOW–Bodies Of Work is now completed.
The curatorial team (Artistic Curator Alexis Vassiliou; Artistic Advisors Alessandro Castiglioni and Simone Frangi) has chosen 12 participants for the workshop to be held from October 1st to October 6th in Limassol, Cyprus.

WORDS4LINK
Scritture migranti per l’integrazione

Il progetto “Words4link – scritture migranti per l’integrazione” vede come capofila la cooperativa sociale Lai-momo e come partner il Centro Studi e Ricerche IDOS e l’Associazione Culturale Mediterraneo (ACM). Aderiscono al progetto la Biennale des Jeunes Créateurs de l’Europe et de la Méditerranée (BJCEM) e le associazioni Eks&Tra, Razzismo Brutta Storia, Le Réseau.

Pensato per valorizzare e diffondere in Italia la conoscenza e la lettura di quella complessa produzione letteraria che per convenzione è chiamata scrittura migrante, Words4link intende promuovere il confronto e lo scambio di buone pratiche in tale ambito.

Per agevolare questo processo, il progetto prevede la creazione di una rete di soggetti ed enti attivi nel settore; una mappatura degli attori chiave (autori, associazioni, libreria, media e editori); l’organizzazione di incontri tra autori, editori, giornalisti e pubblico, lo scambio di buone pratiche, e una campagna di comunicazione nazionale ed europea sulle scritture migranti.

Sei o conosci un autore/rice di origine migrante che ha all’attivo almeno una pubblicazione (anche on-line) negli ultimi 10 anni? Aiutaci a coinvolgerlo/la nel progetto!
