The call for participant is out!

 >From April 22th to May 1st, 2005, the city of Naples will host the 12th 
Edition of the Biennial of Young Artists from Europe and the Mediterranean.
Promoter of the event is the International Association for the Biennial of 
Young Artists from Europe and the Mediterranean (Bjcem), which currently

and national realities of the Mediterranean countries.

The main target of the Bjcem is to promote the young artists' creativity, 
encouraging international exchanges and the development of peaceful 
relationships across the Mediterranean area.
Bjcem is a wide and articulated network with no comparison in the 
continent. It promotes cultural relationships beyond political and 
geographical borders. The Biennial proposes a concept of Europe and 
Mediterranean that wants to unify the countries of this area, through the 
promotion of durable relationships and mutual work.

The 12th Edition of the Biennial, hosted in Naples, invites the young 
artists from Europe and the Mediterranean to participate with their works. 
The chosen theme for the 12th edition of the Biennial is Passion.

excesses and emotions, crossroad of humours, odours, tastes - strong and 
pervasive. Naples is extreme, here each feeling and activities were 
historically lived in an intense and passionate mode, both luckily and
