ArtLab 2021

Economic and social impacts, uncertainties about the long-term consequences and about the strategies for the transition from the crisis recovery to the new normal. In this context, the aim of ArtLab is to try to imagine and build perspectives on the future of the cultural and creative sectors to unfold their potential..

The events in 2021 will take place in a variety of formats: thematic work groups, plenary panels, network meetings, seminars, meetings of national and supranational organisations.

Most events will be held digitally, while some events will be held in person, depending on the evolution of the pandemic situation. All panels will be available free of charge on the programme pages of our website.

The two main events of Artlab are named after the two cities that reflect the ongoing reflections from Southern and Northern Italy: ArtLab Bari-Matera from June 9th to June 12th, ArtLab Bergamo from September 22nd to September 25th.
