30 years of creative productionsMobility, social-cultural policies and new perspectives between Europe and the Mediterranean
BJCEM organised «Biennale 3.0 | 30 years of creative productions» forum, hosted in Turin on October 23rd 2015, with the supportand under the Patronageof the City of Turin, and under the Patronage of the Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities and Tourism. The purpose of the forum was to reflect on the field of contemporary art in the Mediterranean area, in particular on the strengthening of relationships among different areas surrounding the basin. Starting from Biennale’s thirty years of experience and from its two cores – both the promotion of artistic research and the intercultural exchange – the association has identified mobility as the key point and essential premise of each and every statement related to dialogue and creativity, and has felt a need to debate on current problems. Exchanging ideas and feedback coming from experts, artists, and representatives of important cultural organisations has been a way to focus on the most urgent issues and to find the path that a network such as BJCEM must follow to keep building bridges and offering exchange opportunities.
An open lab to collect feedbacks from experts and representatives of the most important European cultural organisations, around the topic of contemporary art in the Mediterranean: Cimetta Fund, René Seydoux Foundation, The Arab Education Forum, Pépinières européennes pour jeunes artistes, Con.Me Platform, EACEA, Culture Action Europe.
It is now available the conference paper, curated by Marta Chiantore, with the coordination of BJCEM.
