Creating a multi-purpose cross-disciplinary art center via the reuse of existing abandoned buildings in a rural area.
The main goal of the project is to create a multi-purpose learning and performing center via the reuse of existing abandoned buildings and spaces inside the farm ( Art Aia -Creatives\in\Residence) and to assist visiting partners in the creation of a workshop\performance\exhibition within the space.The visiting partner is free to decide the topic and the techniques to be used. After a desk and field research on the abandoned structure, during a residency program, a workshop\performance\exhibition will be prepared by the visiting partner based on the result of the research. The purpose is to revitalize the anthropogenic element of the building/ space. Together with the creation of the workshop\performance\exhibition, there will be the preparation of the abandoned building/ Space during which the hosting partner involves volunteers/ local authorities/ sponsors, in order to prepare the structure for the event. The participants of the performance will be performers/artists/ workshop participants from 2 partners – the hosting one and the one that directs it. The visiting partner would also have to be willing to host our group and collaborate in the creation of a workshop\performance\exhibition in an abandoned structure, i.e. abandoned factories, hospitals, monasteries, churches, worthy buildings, quarries, farms etc.,of their city/ town in order to foster cultural exchange and to implement activities and their possible wishes and ideas for future plans in the specific abandoned building/ place.
We are looking for any performer, artist or art organisation (private or public) that is interested in creating a workshop\performance\exhibition in an abandoned worthy buildings inside a farm immersed in the nature of the Friulian Countryside of northern Italy and that is also willing to host our group and collaborate in the creation of a workshop\performance\exhibition in an abandoned structure of their city/ town in order to increase community redevelopment and revitalization as well as self development for new, sustainable growth in Europe.
The aim of the project is also to re-skill and up-skill learners in innovative, creative pedagogical techniques, the art of filming, the use of information and communication technology and organizational and promotional abilities.
Each hosting partner involves volunteers/ local authorities/ sponsors, in order to prepare the structure for the event, i.e. clean the place, remove any material that can cause harm, place seats for the audience, provide lights and sound system, promote the event etc.
The project will be issued with videos on the preparation, workshop, performance/ exhibition and of each partner and a short video of overall partners’ activities.There will be the creation of a Facebook Page and of a Website as posters and informative leaflets for each workshop & performance or exhibition. Articles/ advertisements in local and national newspapers, magazines and informational websites will disseminate the information and eventually there will be the issuing of a Guide on how to exploit abandoned buildings presenting case studies in form of an e-book.
Creating a multi-purpose learning, performing and center is an open art project. Artists, architects, designers, but also people who have brilliant ideas are also invited to send their information about creative projects, to be developed at Art Aia-Creatives \ In \ Residence. Interested building companies can also offer to create an interesting space in cooperation with the artists and the art center.
In September 2014 Art Aia hosted a photography art workshop directed by Mustafa Sabbagh . The Workshop was organized by the Association Grafite which collaborates with Art Aia in developing cultural projects in the territory .
MAPPE FLUIDE è un progetto a cura di MARSALA 11, collettivo artistico multidiscipli-nare, ambientato presso Art Aia – Creatives / In / Residence
L’esposizione è il risultato di una ricerca sviluppata durante un periodo di residenza in loco, durante la quale gli artisti hanno indagato il territorio e la sua comunità attraverso interviste, incursioni paesaggistiche e incontri aperti alla cittadinanza.
Gli interventi site-specific, che utilizzeranno come area espositiva la vecchia stalla di fine ‘800 e le sue adiacenze, andranno ad integrarsi con gli spazi creando un dialogo tra elementi preesistenti e artefatti progettati ad hoc dagli artisti.
MARSALA11 è un collettivo artistico nato nel 2014 dalla comune volontà di indagare le pluralità territoriali attraverso uno sguardo eterogeneo e una ricerca che si modella sulle specificità spaziali con cui si confronta. Ne fanno parte Marco Bonaccolto, Martina Melilli, Rossella Tricarico e Stefano Serretta.
Art Aia – Creatives / In / Residence è un centro culturale collocato all’interno di un’azienda agricola situata nella pianura Friulana, nei pressi del paese di Sesto al Reghena(PN).

“Qual e’ la caratteristica di un artista? Cosa rende un attore creativo al di la’ della tecnica? La risposta è profondamente semplice, è la capacità di essere ispirato, in modo tale da riuscire a vivere spontaneamente la vita del personaggio, nel contesto dell’opera teatrale (…)I pensieri reali sono semplici, personali, profondi, se provengono da ciò che una persona sente e prova . Sono i più spontanei. Non sono “corretti” nè intellettualizzati nè meccanici. Riconoscendo la differenza, si comincia a pensare come un essere umano e a mettersi nei panni del personaggio.” John Strasberg

II INTERNATIONAL RESIDENTIAL WORKSHOP BY JOHN STRASBERG IN ITALY
Art Aia – Creatives / In / Residence -FVG- Italy
8-12 September 2014 .
What makes an artist? What makes him or her creative, going beyond technique? The answer is profoundly simple, the ability to be inspired, able to live spontaneously in the context of the character and the play(….).Real thoughts are simple, personal, profound, they come from what you sense and feel. They are more spontaneous. They are not correct, or intellectualized, and mechanical. Recognizing the difference, you think like a human being, putting yourself into the character’s shoes.
