The fourth in the Valletta 2018 Foundation’s series of annual international conferences explores the interplay between cultural diplomacy, place branding and liveability, particularly in light of large public events such as the European Capital of Culture.
Researching a future no longer dominated by humans, the exhibition displays new media works by acclaimed international artists Tim Arnall, Ignas Krunglevičius, Nicolas Maigret, Maria Roszkwoska, Yuri Pattison, Sascha Pohflepp, Suzanne Treister, Addie Wagenknecht and Pinar Yoldas.
Participants will go through intensive workshops and lectures over the course of 9 days in 3 cities, and listen to international experts like Birgitta Persson (Olivearte), Francois Matarasso (participative art and community art), Julia Pagel (NEMO head secretary), Adam Jeanes (Music/Art Council, UK) and many others.
If you work in the field of arts and culture and want to tackle community challenges in your region; if you want to engage internationally to grow your work, in collaboration with peers who face similar issues in their home regions, we encourage you to apply for Tandem Fryslân.
The festival came to be as a combination of the traditional Ethno Summit – Days of National Minorities and the recently started Bakanalije – Grandma ain’t from around here programme.
The new space in the H-Object, 1550 m2 out of 2055 m2, is being opened thanks to a 7 million kuna investment by the City of Rijeka.
