LWCircus-ArnoLab017 | Shared practices strategies for natural areas preservation + cultural landscape valorization

ABSTRACT The Shared-Operative Workshop LWCircus-ArnoLab017, held in Florence, from 21st till 30th of September, has been conceived to create Ephemeral Installations, as light urban furniture, staging points, temporary shelters, realized on site by the revisitation and assembling of recycled natural material transported by the changing Arno River’s moods. A temporary international, multi cultural and multidisciplinary creative community has tested fruitfully on the field shared practices by using multimedia languages, artistic approaches and performative-spontaneous attitudes in the specific urban context, with the direct involvement of local actors and public institutions responsible for the River’s management and safeguard, looking for a RESILIENT and INCLUSIVE urban future, in terms of responsible cultural valorization and sustainable development for the local community and the diverse minorities directly involved in each step of the operative shared process.
