On 21 November, the call for projects for creative labs is launched as part of «Viavai+», the cross-border cooperation between Canton Ticino, Canton Valais, the region of Lombardy, and with the support of Pro Helvetia.
The creative labs serve to stimulate the creation of binational partnerships through the development of project ideas in «tandems» in all artistic disciplines. The project will comprise a series of workshops open to all cultural practitioners in Lombardy, Ticino and Valais who intend to set up cross-border cooperations in the cultural field.
The idea is to set up 8 Italian-Swiss teams with a maximum of 24 practitioners in total. At the end of the workshops, which will be held in English and conducted by the Milan-based association «cheFare», the best and most innovative ideas will receive an initial contribution of CHF 10’000 from the project partner «Viavai+».
Proposals may be submitted from 10 a.m. on 21 November until 12 noon on 16 February 2018, using the online form on the Unioncamere Lombardia website.
