Together with our Italian partner Associazione “e” we have implemented the Workshop titled”Artist as Entrepreneur” during Paratissima Art Fair this week in Torino. The workshop was part of Paraschool program that offered the artists and the visitors the chance to tale part in educational activities.

Our Workshop focused on self-assessment of artists: the participants were invited to review their competences using the tools, the potential of the group and their reflection about Paratissima.

The workshop was evaluated very positive: as the initiative that is needed for artists on regular basis, empowerment for their future work and a point of critical reflection about their career.

Art Square Luxembourg co-creates Urban Art Project in Italy!

International Artists from Poland, Italy, Luxemborg and Romania will meet today in Torino for big fusion of Urban Art creations. The project is organized in co-operation with Assoziazione e and is co-financed by Youth in Action Program of European Commission.

The project will consist of urban workshops that will be realized and led by young artists from the international teams. Through mural painting, dance in urban space, sound, video-mapping and urban recycling young artists will have a chance to get new skills, new techniques and above all work together on their new themes and ideas.

During the whole week, we will observe the landscape of Torino as the example of interventions of citizens – urban artists, music producers, gardeners, musicians.

Young artists will meet local organizations involved in urban animation:

  • Multicultural Hub CECCHI POINT
  • BUNKER of Association URBE
  • PARATISSIMA of Association Ylda,
  • PicTurin and others.

Profiting from the PARATISSIMA - international art and culture event, we will have a better look at international contemporary and urban art presented there and we will reflect on where and how its force can be used in social change. Thanks to our cooperation with PARATISSIMA, young artists will have an opportunity to expose their previous personal works this contemporary art event in Turin.
