remida and presentations

The first few weeks of the residency are very busy as presentations by the residents and the offices of Cittadellarte need to be made, it feels like a very intensive period but in the end 4 months is not such a long time, so it is important that work is contextualised as soon as possible.

A visit to the ReMida office where Sylvie Calmon introduced the project:

ReMida is a cultural project initiated in Reggio Emilia in 1996 to promote a new way of considering ecology through giving value to waste as objects that may be useful for living a creative and educational experience in full respect of the environment.  Read more about Remida here
