The theme of this year’s event will be Neo-nomadism, a concept that moves fluidly between real and digital life.

It embarks on a survey of new forms of nomadism in culture and labour, which have always been a part of the history of mankind and which are now especially linked to the economic division of the world and to climate change.

The event will approach how the constant movements of people is characterising or own historical moment and also how it is influencing creativity.
