Exchange: TACT2016 is a festival built on the concept of ‘’exchange’’, it is a concrete trade of artistic knowledge, technique and beliefs, thus the complete absence of awards and ranks. During the TriesteACT Festival groups belonging to different artistic realities get to interact with each other, therefore it is requested that:

  • Each group has to be actively present during the whole festival (from 22. until 29. of may, both included);
  • Each group has to offer a WORKSHOP directed by one of his members;
  • Attendees have to take part to one of the offered workshops for the whole week;
