Moleskine Foundation launches a call for international creative talents to participate in its itinerant educational format AtWork. We have planned 4 AtWork workshops in 2018 that will be united under the same topic: “I had a dream”. 100 participants, 100 dreams, 100 projects.
What is AtWork?
AtWork is an itinerant educational format, conceived by Moleskine Foundation and Simon Njami, that uses the creative process to stimulate critical thinking and debate among participants. It helps to develop the intellectual and emotional skills necessary to develop both a personal and a collective sense of identity.
How does it work this year?
Each AtWork chapter is a 4-5 day intensive workshop on the topic “I had a dream” that culminates in an exhibition of the artistic notebooks created during the workshop. Each workshop can accommodate 25 participants and will be conducted by a prominent artist or intellectual, such as Simon Njami or others. There is a fee to participate in the workshop. The money collected through the paying participants will be used to cover the scholarships for the future AtWork workshops.
Moleskine Foundation will be giving out 20 scholarships for each chapter that will cover the participation costs. Travel and accommodation will be at the participants’ expense.
