Info sull'evento

  The workshop aims  at creating props, puppets, banners and images to be used during a No  Grandi Navi (No big Ships) demonstration on Saturday, April 20th. The  Committee against big cruise ships of Venice (Comitato NO Grandi Navi)  fights for the defence of the Lagoon of Venice from extractivist  projects and the presence of unsustainable mega cruises. On Saturday the  20th, a demonstration on the water will leave Venice, pointing towards  an island of the Lagoon, with the goal of temporarily occupying it, as a  symbolic act of liberation from cruise ships and all the linked  projects tampering with the fragile local ecosystem. All the props and  images produced during the workshop will empower the demonstration and  will lately be part of an exhibition at Sale Docks.

Taring Padi –  The Institute of People Oriented Culture Taring Padi was founded in  1998 by a group of progressive art students and activists in response to  the Indonesian socio-political upheavals during the country’s  reformation era. As such, Taring Padi’s artistic practice is always part  of and contextualised within their socio-political and cultural  solidarity and action. Street protests, woodcutting workshops, art  carnivals, and exhibitions in unorthodox spaces are typical of Taring  Padi’s practice of producing collective and individual works. Diverse ad  hoc political alliances, farming and fishing communities, as well as  their own localities are places where Taring Padi work and learn  together. Banners, woodcut posters, and wayang kardus (life-sized  cardboard puppets), as well as the ever popular Dendang Kampungan music  group are Taring Padi’s artistic formulas to agitate, educate, and  organise themselves, their community, and diverse solidarity actions  they are involved in. In 2002 Taring Padi became a collective in order  to further inclusivity and to facilitate personal dynamic of its  members, whilst maintaining its progressive and militant character in  realising the potential of art as a tool for social change.

Climate Justice League – A generative co-creation of eco-warriors icons front for climate  justice. The Climate Justice League will be present in the form of big  cardboard puppets, ready to enter the street and march around the  planet. The Climate Justice League has been launched by the Institute of  Radical Imagination during the 2023 edition of the World Congress for  Climate Justice,with the complicit participation of AndrecoAndrea Natella, Noura Tafeche, Serpica Naro and Dirty Art Department (Jerszy Seymour, Theo Dietz e Rosa Meulenbeld), Institute of Radical Imagination (Marco Baravalle, Emanuele Braga, Maddalena Fragnito, Gabriella Riccio, Federica Timeto) and Le Alleanze dei Corpi.

Powernotte – Was conceived in 2020 in Venice, Italy by two artists : Davide  Salmaso, Rocco Cacciari and a product manager : Giuseppe Bateato. The  concept was an artisanal fusion of home design and contemporary art  using the mediums of sculpture and painting. The work is an  investigation of the animal world within their ecosystems. And there is  special attention paid to the totemic value – even amongst the smallest.  Each piece is artisanally crafted, hand-made and one of a kind. This  slow production, with an attention to artistry is a pushback on the  mainstream production model that harms our planet. Our products cannot  be identically replicated or mass produced. They are each perfectly  unique.
