An opportunity for 10 artists and professionals from different fields to participate in The Shifting Place. This will be the second week-long residency organised by UNIDEE – University of Ideas – and taking place at Cittadellarte, Fondazione Pistoletto in Biella, Italy, as part of the Understanding Territoriality project.
The residency aims to investigate the aesthetic, spatial and temporal fractures of transition territorial processes, both in local and transnational, private and common, material and immaterial dimensions.
The residency is divided into three parts: three days spent around the Biellese mountains hosted by the “agents of change” – members of the Biellese in transition network; the individual and collective work at Cittadellarte; and a public presentation of the residency outcomes. This second week residency module will also establish interactions with locals through exploring their ways of telling stories about “their” own territory, considering people as fundamental tools for revealing some of the evident and hidden, dominant or specific forms and processes of the Biellese territorialities.
Deadline for applications: 29 April 2016
