At a time when creativity has never been more universally encouraged, the artistic community has in turn searched for new and inventive ways to embrace and celebrate creation. Driven by their passion to deliver on these desires, the ITS Arcademy looks to commemorate 20 years of talent support by hosting this year’s edition of the ITS Contest — a long-term commitment to embracing, enhancing and sharing art from all over the world.
With Trieste hosting the finalists of the 20th awards ceremony, a jury will explore the 24 submissions — carefully selected from the hundreds of projects that have befallen the academy in recent months. Amongst the jury is Creative Director of Balenciaga, Demna, who along with a panel of creative alumni will discover the touching narrative behind each applicant — from heartfelt stories of families lost during the pandemic, touching alignments with gender fluidity and nostalgic memories that spark newfound emotions within artists projects.
Taking place on the 9th and 10th of September, the ITS Arcademy will be awarding the most creative, socially aware and innovative finalist project with €15,000 and a six-month mentorship by PITTI Imagine Tutoring & Consulting Direction.
