Cittadellarte-Fondazione Pistoletto, a non-profit organisation 
founded in 1998 in Biella (Italy), is glad to present a new edition

The project, which runs since 2000, focuses on the analysis of the 
relationship between art and society and investigates methodologies 
of creative interventions able to activate projects for a responsible 
social transformation.
The aim of UNIDEE in Residence is to bring together committed 
visual/video animators, artists, photographers, architects from all 
over the world for four months; their interaction and collaboration

During the programme, residents will develop their projects, live and 
work together, exchange ideas, attend lectures and project 
presentations. Moreover, Cittadellarte will arrange opportunities to 
meet and collaborate with experts as well as local partners, such as 
companies, schools, institutions and councils.
At the end of UNIDEE in Residence, Cittadellarte-Fondazione 
Pistoletto will set up an exhibition, where the projects will be 
presented to the public.
