Programme unveiled!

British philosophers Nina Power and Helen Hester, Greek filmmaker Apostolos Karakasis and Spanish architect Santiago Cirugeda are among the participants of the forthcoming International Seminar on Work and Happiness, whose full programme has just been unveiled.

The International Seminar will take place on July 14-15 2017 in Pergine (Italy) in the framework of the Pergine Spettacolo Aperto performing arts festival. It will gather researchers and artists of different backgrounds to reflect on the themes of work, laziness and creativeness – and to debate how these concepts can contribute to achieve (or not) collective happiness.

The main event of the International Seminar is a conference talk-show entitled HAPPINESS CALLING (July 14, 9pm) to be moderated by Riccarda Zezza.

The 2-day event will also feature the screening of Apostolos Karakakis’s documentary feature NEXT STOP: UTOPIA and several workshops and lazyshops, chosen in an international call launched last March.

Among the other artists are Vanja Babic and Bojan Mucko (Croatia), Marta Melucci and Francesca Telli (Italy), Christina Schultz (Germany) and the Brussels-based performance group Incompany.


Online ticket sales are available from June 16 at the platform

Curated by Carla Esperanza Tommasini (artistic director of the Pergine Spettacolo Aperto) and José Capela (co-director of the Portuguese theatre company Mala Voadora), the International Seminar is the first public event organised in the framework of the international project A MANUAL ON WORK AND HAPPINESS.
