Farm Cultural Park
This sleepy town in Italy got its second breath through contemporary art. The town of Favara was sleeping until the FARM Cultural Park came and woke it up. Now it's known around the world for its contemporary art, innovative architecture, and way of looking at the world. Favara is tangible proof that art has the power to move people and change the system.
Manifesta 12 Palermo: The Film
Titled The Planetary Garden. Cultivating Coexistence, this year’s edition has been curated by a team of transdisciplinary working Creative Mediators: Bregtje van der Haak, Dutch journalist and filmmaker; Andrés Jaque, Spanish architect and researcher; Ippolito Pestellini Laparelli, partner of the Rotterdam-based firm OMA; and Mirjam Varadinis, Swiss curator at Kunsthaus Zurich. M12 was organised by a team of 40 local and international professionals and more than 100 volunteers. Manifesta 12 Palermo took place in 20 iconic buildings, palazzos, gardens and churches, many of which have been reopened after years of abandonment by the Manifesta 12 team. Along with the main programme, Manifesta 12 Palermo has presented a rich programme of Collateral Events with more than 70 projects. Along with the M12 Collateral Events, Manifesta 12 has organised a new programme called 5x5x5 that aimed at developing long-term professional relations and networking between Palermo cultural communities and Manifesta’s diverse network of artists, galleries and academic institutions. Additionally, with more than 50 free screenings at Teatro Garibaldi, at the garden in via Primo Carnera in Zen2 realised in collaboration with local association Zen Insieme, and at Arena La Sirenetta that was reopened by Manifesta 12 team after 12 years of abandonment, the Manifesta 12 Film Programme has had almost 3.500 visitors. More than 20.000 individuals have participated in the Education programme in the past two years, and 72 local associations and 34 public schools of Palermo participated as collaborators or partners. 822 guided tours have been conducted by Manifesta 12 special Gardeners, welcoming schools and social groups for free, and reaching out to a total number of 8.925 Tours participants. Before closing its doors, M12 Palermo organised a roundtable discussion at Teatro Garibaldi on Sunday 4 November, in order to reflect collectively on the impact of M12 in the host city, and what it could mean for its future. Speakers were Leoluca Orlando, Mayor of Palermo, Andrea Cusumano, Councillor of Culture of Palermo, Hedwig Fijen, Director, the M12 Creative Mediators and team, and many local professionals and collaborators. The roundtable discussion has been followed by a handover ceremony from Manifesta 12 Palermo, represented by the Mayor of Palermo, Leoluca Orlando, to Manifesta 13 Marseille, represented by the Councillor of Culture of the City of Marseille, Marie-Hélène Feraud. Manifesta 13 Marseille will take place from 7 June to 1 November 2020.

Education Hub is a project of Manifesta 12 Education Department made in collaboration with the University and Academy of Fine Arts of Palermo and the transport company AMAT. Education Hub is generously supported by DGAAP, the Contemporary Art and Architecture Department of the Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Tourism. The Hub is a travelling education platform to reach out to and engage with various communities in the neighbourhoods of Palermo throughout the duration of Manifesta 12. The project is set up in a city bus, radically transformed by the students of the University of Palermo (Industrial Design course led by prof. Viviana Trapani) and Academy of Fine Arts (Graphic Design course led by prof. Cinzia Ferrara) under the guidance of Madrid-based architectural bureau ENORME Studio.
Memorie in Rima
Memorie in Rima – Magione Community Project is a project devised by the Manifesta 12 Education Department, and realised in collaboration with Italian rapper and social worker Christian “Picciotto”. The project aims at gathering and composing collective memories of the residents of piazza Magione, situating the recently reopened Teatro Garibaldi in the neighbourhood and instigating active participation of the community. Magione In Rima – La Festa con Christian “Picciotto” Thursday 31 May, 7:30 pm, at Teatro Garibaldi On Thursday 31 May, at Teatro Garibaldi di Palermo, there will be Magione In Rima – La Festa, a celebrative event to present the exhibition of memorabilia of the families collaborating in the project, as well as to live perform for the first time in public the song written by Memory Crew. Following the event, a concert by Christian Picciotto GSP. The project engages two target groups: students of the Magione-based Amari-Roncalli-Ferrara primary school, and the families living in the neighbourhood. In the last months, Christian Picciotto has organised and run a music laboratory with the students (similarly to his previous work during the Schools in Tandem project organised by Manifesta 12 last May), this way giving life to a new band called Memory Crew. This band has written and recorded a new track, with lyrics inspired by the history of piazza Magione. Simultaneously, Picciotto has been collaborating with the families living in piazza Magione, listening and collecting their personal stories, photographs and ephemera in order to trace the complex history of the entire neighbourhood.
