The second in a series of cultural events programmed by CICA: Changing Identities and Contexts in the Arts, this project is designed to encourage international dialogue among European artists and professionals in the field of art and culture.

CICA is founded on the belief that creating new knowledge on artists' and art's position in the 21st Century will be best achieved through intercultural communication - in discussions, through reflecting on artworks, and in interest-generating public seminars.
