NAM’s programme for the public is an educational workshop in which participants contribute to conceiving design ideas based on the theme of interdisciplinary dialogue. The programme’s aim is to forge a connection between the NAM community and the wider public in order to spark ideas, create relationships and develop artistic skills. The NAM community — the people who live and work in Manifattura Tabacchi’s spaces — is the fulcrum of the entire project, and includes Manifattura Tabacchi’s Artists-in-Residence, B9 makers, curators, artists and artistic collectives who have conceived projects in collaboration with the core team at MT.
Skill and idea development, interdisciplinary practices, analysis of successful endeavors, and experience-sharing all converge in conversations related to NAM’s activities: together we write our own story and shape the physical space in which we preserve and create new memories. Every NAM project is deconstructed, re-elaborated, and thoroughly explored through workshops, cultural mediation activities, lectures, and continuative projects.
The mission of NAM’s programme for the public is to build its future and define its collective identity.
