The Botteghe digitali project was born with the aim of making two worlds interact: the artistic and performative research with sustainable and innovative productive entreprises. The main objective is the birth of new artistic and performative productions capable of narrating and promoting the world of work and stimulate the companies to reflect on their own identity through the artistic language.

Theatre, dance, video, artistic and multimedia installations are tools that can be used to tell the corporate identity, good manufacturing practices, sustainability policies, company memories and reuse of abandoned spaces/shops. The project is aimed to artists under 35 (single participants, groups, companies) interested in international training and development of an artistic – performative project related to experts of performing arts field and the host company.

The first phase of the program, from 25 to 28 August 2022, includes the Summer School entitled “Multimedia and Relational Arts”, which will take place in Gorizia, the city jointly chosen with Nova Gorica as European Capital of Culture 2025.

The second phase of the project foresees the selection and the “implementation” of artistic projects that can be developed, in collaboration with partner companies, within an Artistic Residencies in Gorizia from 29 August to 4 September 2022.
