  • 3:15pm: Talk "Il mare come atelier” (The sea as a workshop) by Alessandra Falconi, atelier metodo Bruno Munari®

The act of creating together is a gentle and powerful tool for feeling part of something. It is through creative work, in fact, that one learns not only to 'do' but also to 'be' and 'become'. "The sea as a workshop" is an educational meeting that teaches us to look at the sea with different eyes: the lens of contemporary art and design, like a filter, will help us to see, to know and to protect. Science and art are brought into dialogue to create new learning contexts, new tools and new methodologies through a proactive discourse on the element in continuous flow and becoming par excellence, the Ocean.

  • 4.30pm: guided tour of the exhibitions “The Soul Expanding Ocean #3: Dineo Seshee Bopape” and “The Soul Expanding Ocean #4: Diana Policarpo. Ciguatera”.
