UNIDEE in Residence 2014
10 June – 10 October 2014
Cittadellarte-Fondazione Pistoletto in partnership with the UNESCO-Aschberg Bursaries for Artists Programme offers a fully supported residency for a young committed visual/ video artists, photographers, architects, animators from Asia, Africa and Latin America.
The fellowship is co-financed by UNESCO-Aschberg and the Cittadellarte-Fondazione Pistoletto. Cittadellarte-Fondazione Pistoletto is a non-profit organisation endorsed by the region of Piedmont, Northern Italy. Since 1998, Cittadellarte-Fondazione Pistoletto has run the UNIDEE in Residence International Programme.
UNIDEE is an interdisciplinary program, open to all creative professionals, from visual artists to cultural actors, designers to architects and all those whose practice centres around taking a responsible stance in society. The aim of UNIDEE is to activate a capacity for transformation in a framework that is both local (Biella) and international (the countries of the UNIDEE residents).
UNIDEE seeks to explore the relationship between Art and Society and fosters the role of artists and creative practitioners as activators of a responsible social change in society
During UNIDEE, the residents initiate projects of responsible social transformation and actively participate in meetings and seminars held by experts in various fields: artists, professors, entrepreneurs, and researchers. Events at Cittadellarte such as exhibitions, conferences, performances, and workshops represent an integral part of the time spent at UNIDEE.
We are looking for artists who are social activators and in particular projects that help to promote a socially responsible transformation in society and open to collaboration both within the residence itself and the greater community. Also someone who is interested in developing new models of culture production, models in connection with interdisciplinary fields such as art, architecture, design, anthropology, urbanism, economy etc etc .
