It’s an artistic collective that operates between Vicenza, Treviso and Venezia. It takes care of installations, set designes, workshops, production/promotion of exhibitions, workshops and temporary entertainments. It’s primarily a catalyst for creativity. Infact, it does not propose and realize ideas directly, but pushes other people to do that, being them simple random passersby, customers of public venues, partecipants of “Laboratories”, visitors to exhibitions and, generally, young and old people. It’s based on interactivity and gaming, it doen’t propose always the same project but reinvents itself continuously, modelling itself to the context in which it operates. The attenders are Silvia, Giulia and Muscoi.
