17.30 – 19.00 Keynote: “Reality: I am lovin’ it! Choosing the reality when it is at its worst”
Every day, a new gadget or an app is invented for us to take shelter in virtual reality. Post-truth world warmly welcomes those too tired to manage the complexity of today’s reality. The numbness we are asked to develop in the face of the world’s perils feels as warm as sleeping in the snow. There is nothing in reality that can inspire hope or determination to carry on living a humane life. Ece Temelkuran argues the ethical remedy lies in getting closer to reality rather than the desperate flee from it. She will talk about ‘the joy of dignity’ and that we can experience this unmatched joy by jumping into the real world.
Speaker: Ece Temelkuran (Turkey)

Focus: Is culture a vehicle of pluralism or cultural homogeneity? Which are the implications in our way of living? This dialogue intends to be focused on migration, diversity, openness, mobility, conflicts, geopolitics and cultural rights. It aims to question which are the approaches to avoid homogeneous cultural conformations and how to define nowadays cultural rights.
Speakers: Annalisa Camilli – Internazionale (Italy); Ceyda Berk-Söderblom – MiklagardArts (Finland)

Online mentoring sessions

This Life on Mars’s edition includes a mentoring support with On the Move. After Bologna, there will be two collective online sessions of one hour each on subjects participants find the most relevant for the internationalisation of their practices. Will be also organised, based on the needs of the participants, individual sessions (one individual online session of 30-40 minutes per participant). Subjects can be around very practical questions (funding for cross-border collaborations, administrative issues related to mobility, communication in English etc.) or more reflexion-based around mobility practices. The individual and collective sessions will be organised from November 2022 till the end of January 2023.
Curated by: On the Move

Final online event

An online session (around 2,5 h) to be held in January 2023, with all the participants will evaluate the entire process. It also aims to check if real opportunities of cooperation have arisen and which have been the main issues and strengths of the collective work.
