Joint Arts is a cultural association founded in 2016 in Bologna by a group of students of Arts management, with the aim of promoting the artistic heritage of the city and bringing the audience to appreciate its contemporary expressions.
MISSION – what we do
Providing citizens with multidisciplinary cultural activities designed to reconnect them with local artistic and historical heritage in its contemporary forms (street art, comics).
VISION – what we want
Contributing to the public awareness of history through art in all its forms.
METHODS – how we do it
History and local identities are subjects often debated with specialistic languages that are not easily understood by the community they are related to.
The Joint Arts method communicated the very same topics through contemporary artistic languages that are more accessible to the communities, while elevating these languages, whose value is hardly recognized, to means of social communication.
