A shared experimental orientation has led Artissima and Torino Social Impact to organise a project that widens the perimeter of action of social innovation to include contemporary art and culture. Focussing on the visibility of talents from all backgrounds in the Italian contemporary art world, ART GRANT proposes role models capable of making even the most unexpected paths more accessible. The ART GRANT will be presented at the fair by a committee that will guide the entire process, leading to development starting in November 2019. ART GRANT is a competition for young talents, an educational project, a residency, and an innovative system of art production, that will premiere at Artissima 2019.
Speakers: Danilo Correale (artist), Mario Calderini (Politecnico, Milan and spokesperson Torino Social Impact), Antonio Damasco (director Rete Italiana Cultura Popolare), Anna Daneri (curator). Moderator: Francesco Antonioli (Repubblica)
