Premio Libera Connessione

•Description of the Project: The first edition of the Libera Connessione Award was born in collaboration with the municipality of Fubine Monferrato and its Mayor Lino Pettazzi. The idea is to want to combine the art of dance with that of the camera, enhancing the territory and uniting them, thus creating videodance works. The project is above all aimed at celebrating the inclusiveness of younger age groups by integrating the use of the Instagram social platform where the various artists will be able to share their works with a much wider audience, giving them 360º visibility. The winning project will give the artist the opportunity not only to be an ambassador of the prize for a year, but also to receive the sum of €1000.00 to invest in his future works.
