On September 18, 2017, at 8.30 pm, at the Sala Estense (Municipal Square), the RiCrea Festival takes physical form: creative companies will regenerate the city. The festival will actually take place on October 20, 21 and 22, within the Factory Grisù in via Poledrelli, but its most important and innovative component, the involvement of 200 high school students in Ferrara, starts on 18th September.
From 18 to 29 September, the two hundred students will be the protagonists of an unusual training experiment: four hours a day for ten days, together with entrepreneurs and creators of Factory Grisù, the Turkish Association, the School of Modern Music in Ferrara AMF and others, the children will create interactive gyms for the creative use of tools, software, social networks, from Arduino to 3D printing to Virtual Reality, from You Tube to Instagram, Open Source Software, Mapping, photography, video and music.
The gyms are aimed at "bombarding" young people with the creative potential of devices and software they use on a daily basis, but as consumers of digital content and connectivity rather than creative content.
The children will be organized in various groups from the 14 to 16 year old age range from different schools, thus multiplying the skills and knowledge of each group. The students of the Vergani Institute will not participate at this stage, engaged in the organization of the main food event of the Festival, the couscous creative dinner, provided to Ricrea by BIA Spa.
The ten mixed groups will each give life to a workshop characterized by a specific focus: the use of video, or Arduino, photography, communication or digital promotion, crafts that interact with the digital, etc. .. Depending on the focal point of the workshop, it will be guided by experienced teachers who will have the task of introducing young people to the potential of the various technologies as they reach their own further practical insights.
The Students will also have the opportunity to interact with creative young people from Ferrara who have recently created the Web Radio Garden and Wah Wah Magazine at the AMF Modern Music School. Finally, during the September training program and during the Maratona24orenonstop of the Festival, the children will have the opportunity to meet with the promoters of Impactscool, a Verona company active in "education of innovation, technology, the future that awaits us [why] knowing the potential of these technologies and learning how to use them can be an extraordinary resource to drive change rather than put up with it or try to resist it."
At the end of the 40-hour initial training, the young Ferrarian students will receive materials and suggestions to extend the topics dealt with during the interval between September 29 and October 20, the launch date of the Ricrea Festival. One group, no. 8, that will be involved in building a micro-theater social promotion campaign, will also be engaged on a weekend in October, at a preview of a future festival by the Ferrara Off Theatre.
From 17.00 on Friday 20 at 17.00 on Saturday, October 21st, at the Ricrea Festival, young people will work within the Factory Grisù, assisted by the tutors met in September, to realize and realize within 24 hours a creative, digital or material. The ten proposals will then be evaluated by a jury that will award a prize to the originality and quality of the proposal.
The evening of Saturday 21 will end with a concert of the Toa Mata Band, the band of small Lego robots invented by Giuseppe Acito, sound engineer graduated from Bologna and graduated at the Conservatory G.B. Martini in electronic music.
