Making sure that young people would participate in the Universal Exposition was, since the very beginning, one of the objectives of the Third Sector organizations that created Fondazione Triulza and the Cascina Triulza project. The Civil Society Pavilion, in collaboration with various partners, has launched tools and initiatives aimed at actively engaging young people in the activities and cultural programme of Cascina Triulza, including: 10 doctoral students, 20 young Civilian Service volunteers, 12 emerging artists or groups of artists, 80 under 35 designers from all over the world.

Initiatives:

  • StartArtist, international Call for Emerging Artists Promoted in partnership with Etica Sgr, the call gives 12 emerging young artists or groups of artists the opportunity to play a leading role in at least 12 events of the artistic programme of Cascina Triulza. The emerging creativity of the new artists will express itself, alternately, on the stage, in the performing corner, in the digital gallery and in the auditorium. Participation is open to artists who operate in the fields of photography, painting, design, music, theatre and other performing arts, video production and other creative disciplines.
