A chi stiamo parlando?

Video documentary on the realisation of the Festival Io non sono solo uno studente (I am not just a student)

Video Sound Art in the 2022 won “Per la Cultura” call organised by Fondazione Cariplo with a project realised in collaboration with the Liceo Volta in Milan entitled A chi stiamo parlando?. The project, implementing experimental co-design practices, involves students, artists and professionals in the sector – cultural operators, architects, curators – in a co-design process at the end of which the high school students will organise their own festival. 

The questions revolve around the role of cultural spaces in relation to young audiences, who continue to be the passive recipients of choices made elsewhere. What practices can reverse this trend? Is it possible to involve users in order to return to sharing that great collective rite that is culture?  

During the opening days of the exhibition, the students met the artists and all the staff of Video Sound Art, taking part in practical workshops on video and photography, communication and production. Students involved in mediation activities accompanied visitors to discover the works through cultural mediations.

The project continued with meetings and workshops with artists, curators, architects and researchers from the Milan Polytechnic’s Centre for Design and Creativity with the aim of devising an artistic intervention within the school.
After 6 months of conception, Io non sono solo uno studente (I am not just a student) was born, a festival consisting of installations and performances entirely designed by the students, scheduled for 16 and 17 March 2023 at the Liceo Volta.
