Explore the concrete possibilities for artists to reside in graffiti houses, for longer or shorter periods, and then expand to include festivals, conventions and other "creative gathering" occasions in which places, foods, and even a weekend are shared. and obviously creativity: it is with this idea that the Atlas of creative residences is born.
The site is born from the observation that that of the creative residences is a subject in continuous evolution: new residences are born and others are closed, the programs and the managers change, also changes the experience of the authors with respect to their stay. In recent years, the practice of co-housing as a solution to the economic crisis has been developing, flanked by the ecovillage network, both in Italy and abroad, which can also be understood as "creative residences" as they arise from reflections and cross-practices of urban planning, construction science, sociology, ecology, economic sustainability and new needs for human interaction.
The Atlas therefore tries to offer Italian authors a consultation tool to get practical and updated information on the possibilities of creative residences in the various countries of the world, integrating information with interviews not only with authors but also with writers, translators, visual artists who they have already experimented with these opportunities, interviews with writers houses managers in various countries, both public and private, and interviews with cultural operators, journalists, local policy makers, teachers, students of "cultural tourism" and others who are interested in topic.
