Open Street 2014 International Showcase in Milan
Castello Sforzesco and city centre - 9th - 12th October 2014
HERE WE ARE AGAIN!!
We are pleased to announce that the City of Milan has accepted our proposal to host the 2014 edition of the Open Street International Showcase from 9th to 12th October 2014. Our idea is to revive the format of the showcases organized in Fermo in 2010 and 2011, trying to create an event also able to have an important impact on Milan, the city that will host the 2015 World EXPO. The City Administration has already given its green light to use the top landmark of Milano: Castello Sforzesco, the very heart of Milan's history and World Heritage Site.
Here there are good bases for the creation of an unprecedented event in Europe, an event marked by cooperation and the promotion of our sector in the European context, an event which is going to put solid roots in Milan and then able to grow and renew itself year by year. The model of event will be mantained more or less the same: the online voting of videos uploaded by artists and companies, the creation of an Official Showcase Program, based on appreciation of videos expressed by festival organizers, the possibility to be inserted in the Off Progam of Showcase, the massive participation of dozens of art directors and event organizers from many European countries...Open Street International Showcase wants to give equal opportunities to all street artists and companies of whole continent, no matter which country they come from! Needless to say that, once more, the web platform of Open Street will be the main support for the online participation of artists and companies, video selection, info dissemination, registration of artists and creation of own online profiles, thus improving what still today can be considered the largest European network on street arts.
We suggest to keep your eyes here on Open Street homepage: shortly you will find the participation calls for artists, companies and art operators....don't miss the opportunity to be part of the most exciting and...European event in the ambit of street performing arts of our continent.....Open Street crosses Europe!
