Art, Geopolitics and Creativity

Panel at The Creativity House, Skopie Sunday 6th September 2009 – 6.30 pm The event is to be considered a platform to reflect on contemporary social and territorial transformations, and it proposes an experience of great value opened to students and young artists in terms of sharing and knowledge. The changing geopolitical scenario has led to the phenomen of rapid transformation in the perception of places, compromising precarious social and environmental balance. The socio-territorial transformation, the great infrastructures, the growing migratory flows, the theme of borders, the hybrid and complex role of the cities and the great Mediterranean area are some of the aspects that will be presented.
