16 artists selected by the Shaping the future project for a week of workshops with project mentors. Friday the 7th of July the closing party

16 young visual artists from Italy, Slovenia, Hungary and Belgium selected from an international call in a shaping the future project, participate in a 4-day training program at the Aldo Galli Academy of Fine Arts in Como, Italy, from 3 to 8 July 2023.The training includes workshops and project development led by a number of expert tutors in the digital field.

The workshops focus on digitization and innovation, exploring various tools and methods to create and modify digital models, work with generative AI, move between physical and virtual environments. They will cover topics such as 'Reality capture', digital fabrication techniques and virtual reality and mixed reality tools, and introduce concepts such as procedural workflows, 3D modelling, lighting, rendering and programming. 

The workshops also emphasize the use of open-source software and digital manufacturing labs (fab labs), which have opened up new possibilities for design and prototyping. Participants will have the opportunity to experiment with these tools and gain hands-on experience in using them to bring their ideas to life.
Shaping The Future is an international project, co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union, aimed at promoting the ability of young artists and designers to imagine and shape the future through visual arts, design and critical thinking.

The main objective of the project is to provide a modular path to support artists for the production and dissemination of their creations internationally.

By educating them on the latest digital technologies and methodologies and supporting them in the process of developing an art project, we aim to enhance the skills and competences of visual artists across the analogue and digital areas.
