Matera 2020

June 9 – 13, 2020

Last year we went to Matera with the following question: What happens when you choose culture for the development of inland and marginal areas?

This year ArtLab Matera turns into a week-long online event (June 9 – 13) when we will continue to listen to different answers and new questions, in light of the complexity that the global situation has imposed on us, to identify the conditions for the recovery of cultural work.

Starting from its ECOC 2019 experience, ArtLab Matera will think about a new role for culture that proves to be able to effectively intervene in the processes of improving people's well-being and social change, in line with the objectives of the 2030 Agenda.

We will take you from your homes to travel virtually to inland and marginal areas to tell you about happy experiences and good practices that have embraced culture and well-being, the potential of digitisation, open opportunities in international cooperation, the scenarios opened by the COVID-19 emergency, and much more.
