On Tuesday, November 23, at 6:30 pm, Connecting Cultures and Fondazione Ismu – Education Department – Heritage and Interculture will present the winner of Lost in Translation – Arte e Intercultura Award at the Triennale of Milan (Sala Lab).
Launched on the occasion of the Symposium Lost in Translation (February 23, 2010)  with the support of the Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities, PaBAAC – DG Landscape, Fine Arts, Contemporary Architecture and Art, the contest was addressed to young artists and cultural institutions, for the first time called to collaborate in the development of art projects dealing with the complex issues of integration, exchange and osmosis between cultures.
At its first edition Lost in Translation – Arte e Intercultura aims at providing support for young artists, encouraging innovative and far-sighted policies of cultural inclusion and promoting a ‘new vocation for public project working’. The event will be an occasion to reflect on the current opportunities for artists and cultural institutions to collaborate on complex and contingent intercultural issues. The discussion will focus on the dynamics and principles that led to the birth of this competition – e.g. the specificity of cultures and the impossibility of translation, the inherent need to reinvent and reinterpret cultures – as well as on the current state of intercultural education in the heritage field; the aim is to provide some general guidelines that, we hope, will with time become the everyday practice of cultural institutions, and ensure that these projects have a real impact in terms of generating new relationships and awareness in local communities.
More than 70 candidates sent project proposals which were carefully evaluated, resulting in a final group of six projects selected by the Advisory Board as worthy of mention due to the originality of ideas, the dissemination of good practices, the degree of community involvement in processes of intercultural exchange and dialogue, the potential impact on the local territory and cultural policies, the feasibility and sustainability in terms of forging new partnerships between young artists and cultural institutions. The artists, alongside their institutional partners, will be invited to briefly outline the most important aspects of their projects; finally, the name of the winner will be announced.
