PLACE MAKING // FARE SPAZIO invited artists and performers to reflect on the role of public space, seeking to develop new ideas for the ways in which we design, interact, and play with our city.
The evening included participatory artworks, installation, video projection and performance by diverse artists selected through an open call, as well as a workshop lead by the Canadian artist duo Crazy Dames.
After several iterations in Canada, for the first time in Florence, Crazy Dames hosted the workshop "How to Build a Blanket Fort" which invited participants to work together to transform an area of the park into an epic version of a quintessential childhood space.
