The project “Orti del Biellese” (Biellese farmed gardens) continues: when healthy food generates socialisation and solidarity
Numerous citizens of Biella are taking part in the initiative that provides weekly home deliveries of boxes of fruit and vegetables from local social gardens. It will be possible to support the activity by using the service or helping those who work in the fields even in July and August, months that offer a new selection of fruit and vegetables.
Relying on the collective contribution of a panel of speakers, Cittadellarte has recently identified a series of challenges on the theme of water. The regional challenges, emerged as a result of the debate among the experts, will be the pivotal contents of the artistic residency STARTS4Water, which will be held in the spaces of Fondazione Pistoletto.
The Red Cross in stories from seven different voices: the book dedicated to the voluntary service organisation will be released on 9th September, between “tales and testimonies, the story of small and big events, about people who every day, in silence, work for us”. The publication gathers seven contributions by as many authors, including Michelangelo Pistoletto.
The call, open until 21st September, invites adult artists and designers to create one or more drawings inspired by the sustainable development goals lending themselves to being coloured in. The winning works – which will then be both printed and published on social media – will be distributed to Cuban children, so that they can explore the issues conveyed by the SDGs with a different approach.
News is coming in from the temporary association of purpose curating the initiative: from September, in addition to receiving weekly boxes of fruit and vegetables from local social gardens, you will be able to collect them directly from the plots producing them. Also, an open day is scheduled for 12th September with all the protagonists of the project.
From 4th to 10th September, two installations created by the artist from Biella and Juan Sandoval will be exhibited at the gallery in Milan. The works, which highlight the message of dispersion and communication implicit in the sea as a crossroads of peoples, are part of the project "Mezzoterra Mezzomare Mediterranean Seas – Love Difference Chairs".
