The 15th edition of Cittadellarte residency programme has evolved: a new type of educational programme divided into open weekly modules, an experimental knowledge platform based on exchange and research. You can enroll, designing your own educational path, through an online tool. A few months of an open programme, based on weekly units, will become a public utility conceived as a constant reference for an evolving community.

UNIDEE, a programme of intensive and dedicated weeks, trains artivators (activators of social transformation processes through creative ideas and projects), a professional figure that gathers together the characteristics of the artist, the curator, the entrepreneur and the social planner.

The residency weeks will be open to professionals, artists, scholars, curators and anyone interested in delving into specific themes relating to art in the social sphere. The programme is developed by mentors together with a multidisciplinary international group. Weeks are led by experts suggesting a deep analysis of essential competences and aspects: from inter-subjectivity to common and alternative economies, from responsibility and new technologies to architecture of the social space, implicities and complicities.


The structure
– Weekly modules, starting from the end of July
– Participants are required to pay only 200 euros
– Each residency is a minimum of one week to a maximum of four consecutive weeks
– Weekly schedule: Sunday arrival and welcome to Cittadellarte. Lectures from Monday to Friday. Saturday morning departure.
– Each week has a maximum number of participants

Sign up and get information through the online platform. Participation is partially funded by Cittadellarte partners.
