Workshop curated and conducted by Love Difference and artway of thinking
promoted by Love Difference and Cittadellarte-Fondazione Pistoletto
with the support of LLP Grundtvig workshop programme.


The research project “Methods”investigates the methodologies applied in creative processes for the social responsible transformation. A research that for several years has involved personalities of the artistic world who are parting from specific social problematic issues and through a network of communities, organizations, public and private institutions have come to realize new modalities of exchange, dialogue and co-creation.

At its fifth edition, the project is opening to a new and wider phase: the extension of research about methods of disciplines that go beyond the artistic context.
