Friday Island is a series of events committed to create a space and occasions for meetings that generates exchange between artists as well as a public dialogue around a given topic. Open to artists of all disciplines and working with different media, Friday Island offers a platform for experimentation beyond creative processes bound to production and marketing logics.
The artistic contributions are encouraged to be experimental and critical. They are challenged to question the theme and to suggest out-of-the-box perspectives. The aim is to promote alternative points of view and interpretations of a certain reality, to initiate a debate and an exchange of opinions. Indeed, each theme allows different approaches and readings that are socially and philosophically stimulating.
Beside the presentations of the artists’ work, an open discussion, chaired by a moderator, between the artists and the audience provides an opportunity for all participants to express their thoughts.
Friday Island fosters the idea that awareness and knowledge are produced through mutual exchange when held in a pleasant and friendly atmosphere. The artists’ reflections and contributions around a common theme are the starting point for a journey through questioning and careful consideration. Friday Island promotes inclusion and acceptance and is open to everyone. It encourages participation and collaboration with the social reality of each specific venue.
