We’re preparing the 3rd Edition of VAA. The new call will comes out soon. The Prize conceived and promoted by the Centro Luigi Di Sarro is dedicated to video art between Italy and South Africa.
In such a delicate moment caused by the persistence of the pandemic, we want to insist on the need not to stop, to continue to keep alive those threads that nourish and enrich creativity and at the same time offer a new opportunity for promotion and visibility to the works that the VAA has selected and awarded, between the two past editions 2018 and 2019.
The appointment is for the 8th DECEMBER 2021 at 4 pm (italian time) as part of the initiatives for the Contemporary Day in Italy and in the world. the Centro Luigi Di Sarro and the Italian Cultural Institute in Pretoria present Beyond the short: webinar , a remote dialogue between Italy and South Africa with the protagonists of the VAA Award which encourages and promotes the production of works that use the moving image.
The meeting will be opened by the message of the Italian Ambassador to South Africa Paolo Cuculi as a testimony of how important are the exchange projects that cross ideas and cultures.
At the end of the event, the new Call will be opened and published.
