Thinking of a sort of renaissance within the urban landscape, the research at the base of the LWCircus International Program, with the devices of the ArnoLabs Shared Creative Workshops in particular, focuses on experimentation through artistic and multimedia languages, which through the medium of art in the landscape, can give back meaning to places and reconstruct those ways of living and enhancing the landscape, typical of the times when communities actively contributed to the construction of their cities.

From 22nd of May till 2nd of June, a temporary international, multi cultural and multidisciplinary creative community, fruitfully will test 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.

A groups of selected young refugees, coming form Burkina Faso, Ghana, Gambia and Bangladesh, survived crossing of Mediterranean, coming from Libya and temporary hosted in the Florentine context, will be invited to join the rest of international creative group (coming from Mexico, China, USA, Australia, Lebanon and Syria, Colombia, Venezuela UK, Holland, France, and Italy). They will work highly animated in designing and realizing the series of ArnoLab2019 installations, sharing wishing and hopes with the rest of international participants and the locals, becoming temporary part of the local community and starting a process of social inclusion that will give life to successive opportunity for further inclusion on the local realities.
