BJCEM-Biennale des jeunes créateurs de l’Europe et de la Méditerranée, the Ministry for Education and Culture of the Republic of San Marino, the Cultural Institutes of the Republic of San Marino, and the University of the Republic of San Marino are glad to announce the selected artists of Mediterranea 19 Young Artists’ Biennale – School of Waters.

The current crisis has made it necessary to postpone the official opening of Mediterranea 19 Young Artists’ Biennale until 2021.
The new official dates are M
ay 13-16, 2021.

Even at a moment of standstill, Mediterranea 19 continues to research and dialogue with the artists with the aim of expressing the Biennale and its ecological potential in a collective transitory space, a waiting room hosting the preparations for next year’s event in San Marino.

The curatorial team of School of Waters, driven by the symbolic agency of waters, conceived an editorial platform which functions as a digital wetland: a breeding ground wherein ideas foster, processes collect and multiply, generating syncretisms that gradually build the ecosystem of Mediterranea 19

BJCEM, the State Secretariat for Education and Culture, the Cultural Institutes of the Republic of San Marino and the University of the Republic of San Marino, has launched MEDITERRANEA 19 Young Artists Biennale, a transnational Biennale, which will take place in 2021 in the Republic of San Marino under the title School of Waters.

MEDITERRANEA 19 – School of Waters is dedicated to artists, writers and researchers under 35 coming from or based within a constellation of territories related to the Mediterranean Sea. In this geopolitical frame, MEDITERRANEA 19 – School of Waters aims to reflect on exchanges and hybridizations as well as on crossed diasporas in the Mediterranean globalized space. Disseminated in different venues in the Republic of San Marino, MEDITERRANEA 19 is curated by the third edition of A Natural Oasis? A Transnational Research Programme (2018-2020):

Paradiso Urban Art

Street art, rigenerazione urbana e dialogo con le comunità

Brindisi, quartiere Paradiso

agosto – settembre 2020

Un quartiere d’arte, con artisti a lavoro tra i cittadini, colori, immagini e l’entusiasmo che la street art regala nell’orbita di una vera e propria rigenerazione urbana: al via Paradiso Urban Art, un progetto corale che trasformerà il quartiere Paradiso di Brindisi in un cantiere artistico a cielo aperto. In questi giorni è in corso un progetto pilota per interventi di arte all’interno del quartiere, voluto e ideato da Arca Nord Salento, grazie alla fondamentale intesa dell’Assessorato all’Industria Turistica e Culturale e dell’Assessorato all’Urbanistica della Regione Puglia, in stretta sinergia con Teatro Pubblico Pugliese, Polo Biblio-Museale di Brindisi, BJCEM (Biennale dei Giovani Artisti dell’Europa e del Mediterraneo), Comune di Brindisi e con il coordinamento sul campo dell’impresa sociale ImmaginAbile.
BJCEM is proud to be part of the DEAR community with #FoodWave, a project that will bring together and enable young people from 17 countries to raise their voice for food and #climatejustice. In particular BJCEM will launch a visual art contest for young activists, in the third year of the project.
Food Wave has the aim to create awareness on sustainable ways to consume and produce food for climate change mitigation and activate young people in their cities, in order to enable them to influence institutional decisions, so they can lead us to a sustainable global food system by 2030. The project is co-funded by the EU and promoted by the Municipality of Milan together with ActionAid Italia, ACRA, Mani Tese and 25 project partners in 17 countries. The network consists of 14 cities, 5 municipal agencies and 6 civil society organizations closely linked with the cities. C40, the international network of cities engaged in the fight against climate change, is also affiliated to the project.
