Over 300 artists, intellectuals, cultural operators, administrators, researchers and trainers from all over Italy come to Torino for a two-day meeting where different approaches, disciplines, languages and cultures cross. Big and small museums, independent cultural centres, international festivals, foundations, public administrators from cities, towns, provinces, regions, ministries... enliven ArtLab events: a laboratory of ideas and an independent space reflecting on the role of culture, building a dialogue without reticence with representatives of politics, economics and civil society.
This year the meeting starts with a plenary session launching the
themes: the cut of public resources and the role of privates, the
media conveying and spreading culture, the exploitation of cultural
policies, the renewal of theatres and cultural institutions.
In the late afternoon, a session will be dedicated to the
presentations of interesting books.
On Saturday in the parallel seminars, some interviews will be carried out with people working in sectors other than culture who tackled with cultural policies as well as with the artistic and cultural creation, as a fertile ground to explore and experiment.
