This is an open call for applications to partake in Creating Territorialities, a weekly residential module conceived for Cittadellarte – Fondazione Pistoletto by Giusy Checola within the frame of the project Understanding Territoriality: Identity, Place & Possession (TIPP) and developed under the umbrella of UNIDEE – University of Ideas (directed by Cecilia Guida and developed in collaboration with Juan Esteban Sandoval, within the general direction of Cittadellarte’s director Paolo Naldini).
Creating Territorialities is a research-oriented residency program, aiming at investigating notions and forms of “territoriality”, meant as an interrupted relationship between inhabitants and territory. Territory – whose investigation is based on its complexity and qualities, and on spatial, cultural and social sustainabilities – is understood here as an outcome of the co-evolution of human life and that of the living place, as composed by historical, cultural, social and identitarian stratifications.
Eligible to apply : creative professional (visual artist, designer, architect, curator, writer, etc., …) active in any field anywhere in the world, born after 1970.
The deadline for submitting your application is 13.09.2015, 11pm CET.
