The project

ArtLab 2022 Header forme colorate viola

ArtLab. Territories, Culture, Innovation is the most important independent Italian event dedicated to innovation in cultural policies, programmes and practices, providing space for structured dialogue between stakeholders from the creative and cultural ecosystem and in dialogue with other sectors, in a cross-sectoral and transnational perspective.

Promoted in 2006 by Fondazione Fitzcarraldo, it relies on a network of more than 40 partners including European networks, cultural agencies and institutes from different countries, public administrations, territorial agencies, foundations, companies, institutions, universities and professional organisations.

What does ArtLab do?

  • It contributes to the development and strengthening of the role of the cultural and creative sectors in society, economy and institutions;
  • It promotes the recognition of their contribution to the creation of social and economic value;
  • It develops strategic guidelines and operational indications for professional communities and stakeholders.

How does it do this?
Through five lines of action:

Generating new geographies of thought, through critical analysis of policies, programmes and projects

Contributing to legislative and economic–financial decision-making processes

Strengthening dialogue with local stakeholders

Developing the European dimension of the Italian cultural and creative ecosystem

Disseminating knowledge and results in Italy and abroad
