The theme of this year is pedagogy. What is art, if not a pedagogy of the look?
On giovaniartistiravenna.org you can browse through the archive of all the artists participating in the project, which build a kind of mapping of the young artists who have been working in this territory in the past decade. Thanks to an agreement with Ravenna Teatro, Fanny and Alexander and Cantieri Association, the archive has opened to other disciplines like dance and theatre. RAM project is included in the activities of GAI Giovani Artisti Italiani.
First organized in 1999 by Mirada Association on behalf of the Department for Youth of the City of Ravenna, RAM has served as the springboard for the new generation of artists and creative people of our region, now becoming the most important event to learn about emerging artists in the area of Ravenna.
