Residency Period: Jan – Feb 2015

Love Difference is a cultural association, whose works revolve around the will to meet and understand each other. Established in June 2002 by the artist Michelangelo Pistoletto, one of the pre-eminent contemporary artists today, together with international institutions, cultural centres, researchers, curators and artists, Love Difference was intended as an extension of the activities and vision of the Cittadellarte-Fondazione Pistoletto, an art and creativity laboratory founded in 1998.

Since 2004, Emanuela Baldi and Filippo Fabbrica have coordinated Love Difference works on: workshops on shared collective processes; “making together” actions in collaboration with artists; networking and expertise on group dynamics for public and private sectors; artistic projects for dialogue among cultures; food events; conventions, meetings, seminars, concerts, performances, exhibitions. Love Difference won an Evens Prize for Intercultural Education 2005-06.

In January 2015, Love Difference and Brack presented a practical workshop which shared their projects and the co-creation methodology by artway of thinking which they have used in their community-based art projects since 2002, including Identity at the Centre (Identita Al Centro), a participatory project that that examined indicators of quality of life in the Old Town of the Montevarchi, Italy.
