About UNIDEE – University of Ideas
Since 2015, UNIDEE – University of Ideas at Cittadellarte has widened its activities launching a new educational programme, characterised by a dynamic, flexible structure of weekly residential modules, aiming to trigger and pave the way for a (re)localisation of participatory artistic practices in social contexts. Based on interdisciplinary research, knowledge sharing and experience exchange, the programme fosters processes of cross-pollination
to investigate the relationship between art and public sphere. Designed for artists, curators as well as students, social entrepreneurs and cultural project managers, the modules are open also to members of the broader public who are interested in delving into themes such as: social responsibility, urban transformation, participatory art practices, alternative models of local economic development, sustainability within fashion and construction industries, et cetera.
The new UNIDEE – University of Ideas at Cittadellarte is characterized by the offer of specific seminar and laboratory modules which also frame the artists’ residency programmes, thus suggesting a redefinition, from an educational point of view and within a process of thematic inquiry, of the traditional concept of artists’ residency, generally finalized to the production and exhibition of works of art realized in situ.
