Where: Castello Angioino in Mola di Bari, Italy
The star-shaped fortress is located on the city waterfront and spreads over 1000 square meters indoors and 400 square meters of outdoor courtyard; being a gateway to the central square, it is an obvious urban and social reference.
Officina dell’Arte – APS will inaugurate a two-year management period of some spaces of the Angevin-Aragonese Castle of Mola di Bari through a great event that will combine the Con.divisione artists’ residency (now in its tenth edition) with the XYZ research and co-design workshops, organized by La Scuola Open Source.
Those enrolled in the XYZ laboratories will participate in the activities divided into 3 working groups, managed by teachers and tutors who will coordinate the design of the identity, spaces and governance of this new cultural production center.
X / COMMUNICATION
→ naming and communication strategy
→ visual identity system
Y / INSTRUMENTS
→ multifunctional modular staging
→ interactive light installations
Z / PROCESSES
→ regulation, community empowerment
→ business plan, impact analysis
During the residency, the artists will work alongside the participants and teachers of the workshops, in a liquid and trans-disciplinary context. In addition, the artists will be in charge of some experimental teachings, which will be preparatory and transversal to the XYZ laboratories.
The co-design experience will end on 9th September with a final presentation of the outputs of the XYZ laboratories and the inauguration of the exhibition-event, the result of the Con.divisione artists’ residency, which will be open to the public until 12th September.
