Come one, come all to see and meet local and international artists at work. Participative arts are a growing trend and Artlinks is your chance to taste, feel and touch it.
The event is open to all art lovers and encourages collaborations between social and cultural actors from the public and private sectors, from ten European countries.
You will learn about the current initiatives, exchange knowledge and find new partnerships in a friendly and festive atmosphere. Exhibition modules and creative workshops will introduce you to a current variety of methods. Creative workshops will involve photography, painting and video. An afternoon drink will offers you the possibility to build and deepen relationships.
Three round table discussions will explore :
- the possibility to enhance collaborations between artists, cultural organizations, and actors in the field of social mediation, insertion and cohesion, as well as health, communication, and sustainable development .
- the extension of the method to other artistic means involving new media technologies such as interactive installation, sculpture, NTIC…
- the development of legal, administrative, logistical and financial tools in the service of the creative professions and international cultural cooperation
The first session of the festival has been running on the 24th and 25th of May 2012 and has been covered by a special issue of the “Africa e Mediterraneo review”.
