LIBERTY is a project co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union. It was created to deal with themes such as community cohesion, migration, local and European identity through festivals and artistic performances.
The project aims to motivate and provide young artists, directors and performers with food for thought about the future of Europe by engaging them in the project, from concept development to public entertainment. This will help create a network of exchanges, meetings, common initiatives and collaborations among different countries.
LIBERTY brings together 12 cultural partners from 10 countries, partners with shared values, passions and commitment; the project is an initiative that was coordinated by UK agency ArtReach and involves Explora and other partners:
The project aims to:
- create an international team of artists from all partners’ countries;
- create a portfolio of 750 international artists under 30;
- organise a festival featuring performing arts, seminars and activities to engage the whole community.
LIBERTY will involve Explora with a Festival of Visual Arts to take place on November 22nd, 2020, the International Children’s Day, and a Festival of Digital Arts, scheduled for summer 2022.
LIBERTY AT THE MUSEUM…
LIBERTY involves Explora with a Festival of Visual Arts and a Festival of Digital Arts and the setting up of the Liberty exhibition of illustration , the result of the collaboration with national and international artists who have reinterpreted the Convention on the Rights of the Child and Adolescent in the canvases exhibited in the hall and in the garden of the Museum.
The Liberty Festival was held in February 2021, a series of weekend events with outdoor education activities in which play with art and creativity in the green area of the Museum. Thanks to the support of an Explora animator and the video tutorials by illustrators Gabriele Genova and Chiara Ficarelli, the children created nice works dedicated to the theme of childhood and adolescence.
