Puglia 2008 - Project and Venues
The Region Puglia, for its geographical position and its Mediterranean vocation, is consider a crossroad between East and West, an area for the dialogue and the cultural exchanges.

The project foresee to host the productions of the XIII Biennale in the whole region, creating a real artistic network on the basis of cultural, social and economic vocations of the Puglia territory.

This statement would allow to reply in many towns some artistic disciplines (for ex. Images in the Move, Performances or Readings) in order to permit the audience of wide areas of the region to assist to the held artistic productions, as well as to concentrate in other towns some artistic disciplines (for examples exhibitions) catalyzing the cultural and economic realities of the region which are specialized in that field (galleries, Academies etc. spread in the region).

The venues surely suggest an everyday practice, developing symbolic imaginaries and creating an added value: maybe Puglia is one of the Italian regions which express at best these concepts thanks to its richness and artistic, architectural, historic and cultural varieties.

In the whole region there will be venues set up to host the artistic disciplines forecast by the Call for participants of the Biennale, thought to favour as possible the disciplinary meetings in a sort of large area of free cultural exchange.

We would be in a huge artistic bag in the Euro-Mediterranean area, which will make Puglia the meeting point of social, economic, politic and geographic reference for artists, operators and public and private institutions.

The theme for the XIII Edition of The Biennial 2008 is: "Our Creative Diversity: kairos " (Greek word pronounced keeros, meaning fit time, opportunity, a point in time where change is possible).

"Our Creative Diversity: kairos"
"kairos" is a possibility of change in the city, and feel the vigorous urge towards its further evolution. We have witnessed so much damage and dismay, there is a will building towards that "kairos" point in time where change can take place all over the Mediterranean Region and especially in the south and Middle East.

"kairos" time is also approaching for artists of all kinds. Art has its uses as well as beauty that addresses our deepest feelings. Art can be intense and provoke, raise our awareness, and soothe our feelings. Young artists especially have a fresh approach and can urge their audience to face up to new standards, see new ways. Young artists can transcend the limits that tradition and inertia have imposed and face the new possibilities. They can depict and interpret, raise issues, propose a change, add comprehension, express dismay, raise hope. So also it can be used to enhance and encourage evolution of thought at critical times, at a "kairos" time.
