The ITS Arcademy will combine the museum concept with the academic one. The exhibit area will include the ITS Creative Archive and temporary exhibitions, offering a space for dialogue between the world of fashion and those of the arts, cinema and design. The educational part will be aimed at two different kinds of public: a popular one, with courses and workshops aimed at elementary, middle and high school students from all over Italy, visitors and the local community; and a professional one dedicated to insiders, where former ITS competitors will be able to return to Trieste as teachers, and where companies will be able to organize workshops, seminars and special projects.
ITS Arcademy is among the winners of the public competition announced by Regione Friuli Venezia Giulia devoted to Cultural and Creative Spaces, a joint initiative carried out by the regional government offices of Culture, Training and Productive Activities. The European policies regarding the 2021-2027 programming consider culture and creativity as tools of social cohesion and integrated urban development. In synergy with such goals the competition supports initiatives aimed at enhancing the value of the cultural heritage of Friuli Venezia Giulia, at promoting economic development and innovation, at creating suitable settings for new methods of permanent learning within formal and informal settings.
ITS Arcademy will be a space where past finalists, jurors and the rest of the international ITS community will have an active role: a home for innovators, insiders from the fashion industry, scholars, and visionary talents will be always welcome to come and exchange experiences while brainstorming on the future of design, actively contributing to its realization. The activities of the ITS Arcademy will explore the world of creativity through a vast array of events, courses and formative activities. From the simply curious - including any age group regardless of their level of experience - to professionals and companies, everyone will find a tailored program according to their needs.
