From the 27th to the 30th of October 2016 Associazione Interzona will have the great pleasure to host TEH Camp Meeting 82 in its venue, Magazzino 22. A camp meeting is an opportunity for TEH members to know each other, mingle and work together at old and new projects and to plan more fruitful collaborations for the future. Project already in progress are Europe Grand Central, Creative Lenses and Educational Programmes in TEH Centres, but during the meeting more will be added to the list. This meeting will also mark the end of Associazione Interzona activities in the building: the Camp Meeting will be thebest way for Interzona and its volunteers to celebrate 10 years of work in this venue and to advocate for a new one.
Associazione Interzona was born in 1992 in Verona's warehouse area (fallen in disuse but currently being restored) – operating at first in the Refrigerating Station (excellent example of industrial architecture built in 1929) and since 2006 in Magazzino 22, a 700 mq multifunctional space from the 40s. The aim of Interzona, whose activity is based exclusively on volunteer work, is to explore and promote all expressions of the independent artistic scene in music, performing and visual arts, theatre, cinema and literature, with a special focus on innovative and experimental interpretations. Interzona has long been collaborating with other cultural centres and institutions – local, national and also international ones, thanks to Trans Europe Halles. More than 700 events have taken place at Interzona in almost 25 years of life: concerts, performances, film festivals, artist residency, workshops and conferences, just to name a few.
This is a workshop about developing and clarifying your idea, be it setting up a new centre or developing a new type of project. The aim of the workshop is to identify key issues and challenges, looking to find ways to make dreams and visions possible.
We live in a world of constant change in all areas: social, political, economical, technological, etc. The old rules don’t seem to work any more. And our organisations are facing more challenges that ever before. How can we better tackle our current challenges and prepare for future ones? Is there something we can actually do?
Do you have performance programmes at your centre throughout the year? Is it challenging to invite big, expensive companies? Would it not be better to share responsibility, budgets and communication with other TEH members? Many of us experience the same struggles programming, communicating and financing. Why not try to share tasks and invite companies to 2-3-4 or more TEH centres?
The idea is to establish a group that together will create a common short film programme to tour in the summer in TEH venues. The work in the session will be basically a general discussion with all the partners interested in this project, about everyone’s possibilities and constraints, and to define the film programmes (searching process, selection, negotiation, preparation of the copies etc.), the practical organisation of the touring programme (equipment, scheduling etc.) and the budgets (costs, financing by the partners or with subventions / sponsors etc.).
Many TEH centres work with educational activities. How can these centres develop and strengthen their activities by exchanging knowledge and experiences with each other? What goals would be meaningful parametres for collaboration? What activities would it be beneficial to exchange and develop together?
The basic idea of this session is to involve TEH members from the very beginning in co-creation of the content for the next TEH conference „Culture and Sharing Communities“ taking place at Rojc in Pula, 2017.
The session is initiated by Irena from Rojc, Pula: “We are all worried about the way politics in Europe are developing. Are the values that are „normal” and common to all of us in danger? At the TEH meeting in Vienna, May 2016 we started to talk about this because a lot of us felt that we need to react somehow.
The idea of expanding TEH entails new challenges concerning the actual involvement of the members. How can we improve the structures of the network to accomodate on the one hand the increasing number of requests from cultural centres to become part of our community and on the other hand preserve the intimate feeling of the network?
Many TEH members take part in the Erasmus programme European Voluntary Service (EVS), where young adults (age 15-30) do voluntary work for max one year. It doesn’t cost anything for the youngsters and mostly also not for the host organization.
Project documentation is dead. Booklets, PDFs, and websites are hard to spread after a project and often left to rot in some funder’s office. Results are that lessons from one project are rarely transferred to another.
Two projects are soon to be realised, they both deal with the use of public space, how it informed and influenced citizens in the past, what happens now and what can take place in the future.
If in the past gardens were meant as privileged spaces of harmony, beauty and contemplation of domesticated nature, in time they have become the subject of a broader reflection, which opens from the botanics to other fields of knowledge including art, architecture and anthropology.
Can civil society, the business community and public authorities work together on sustainable city development despite their differences? What can open up for such a collaboration and what is necessary to sustain it? What is required by the arts community – are we able to make ourselves understood or are we just misunderstood? In this seminar open to the public you will hear stories and experiences by four cultural professionals from different parts of Europe where a local cultural organisation has taken the initiative to challenge status quo in a collaborative manner. What were the obstacles they had to overcome and what were the outcomes? What can we learn from their experiences and can they be translated into our own contexts? To complement the perspective, we will hear how the city of Genua has recently initiated a project on how industrial heritage can be reinvigorated. Who will they involve in this process and how will this contribute to a more ustainable city?

There’s a special elective af nity between Interzona and Any Other: they both can’t fit in only one de nition and they’re both stubborn daydreamers – sensitive but resolute, always looking forward to what’s coming next.
Any Other started as an acoustic one-man-band formed byAdele Nigro but soon found new sounds and possibilities thanks to the creativity of Marco Giudici and Erica Lonardi (now replaced by Niccolò Fornabaio) who have given unexpected sceneries to the autobiographic lyrics written by Adele.
We love that they’re self-made, unde ned and totally unlimited: we couldn’t nd a better opening for this 82° Meeting TEH!
Here at Interzona we love music but also art, installations and performances. And we totally fall in awe when we find spectacular artworks that reunite them all as Mind, Walk, Double Jump and so on! Created by actresses and performers Roberta Da Soller and Ilaria Dalle Donne, it’s a “city symphony” which investigate the power of desire as a creator of different realities that keep colliding and relate the individual to the multitude. It’s a collective performance on constant construction/deconstruction and it has no focal point of view but only reminiscences that come from urban hints: it’s up to the audience to collect them and let Desire create a new dimension.
UNTAIL 2000.16 dwells somewhere halfway between space and time, a dim light of sense where the esh dissolves into a ghostly substance. UNTAIL is a made-up word that sounds familiar, identified by number 2000.16, as though the timing and manner of vision were those belonging to a trip to the Natural History Museum and its Wunderkammer. Using the idea of homology, it is possible in biology to bring on some deep analogies among the various functions of certain structures belonging to different species; in the same way, the body and the objects inside the reshaped space of the church, overlapping, dissolve their own contours through a movement that analyses the virtuality of its own inner perspective and shape, via the consistency of the fringes and the motility of the joints.The pathos power of the distinctive and autobiographical element is at odds with its invisible part, opening up the possibility of a sensory dissolvence.There is always something missing, unwinding, and by backing out it opens upthe space of familiarity, an undetermined dark zone that shares some analogic elusiveness with the tale’s segment.
Once upon a time there was a tiny village on the mountains of Verona and in the middle of this village there was a little house and inside this little house there was a psych-folk band who couldn’t imagine they were going to become one of the most in uential bands of Europe.
In a few years C+C=Maxigross have created their own record label (Vaggimal Records), the crazy Lessinia Psych Festival in the heart of their beloved mountains and brought their unique sound to Primavera Sound Festival in Barcelona. Now they’re going to set our stage on fire with a super lysergic show – the perfect way to say goodbye to our TEH friends and also to our Magazzino 22!
Are you ready to take a break from the cold Europe and go on a trip along the equator? Brace yourself and jump on The Flying Carpet coming to Interzona straight from Radio Ciutat Vella (Barcelona, Spain)!
Our old-time friend will disclose e-v-e-r-y shade of African rhythms, tropical sounds and afro-american beats and enchant us all with touches of jazz-funk, calypso, disco- boogie and boogaloo from the Fifties to these days. Get ready to find yourself shaking your underground booties on our dance oor (yes, ALL of you) and let’s celebrate the meeting and our Magazzino 22 like crazy!
The djs of IZ Sound System: who are they? What makes them different from the guest djs who start off or close the shows, or from those who make the audience get down in our disco lounge while their friends are enjoying live shows - even quiet ones sometimes - in the main concert hall? They clearly are lucky fellas who, after taking the first tentative steps at Magazzino 22, have bloomed so much as to be able to say “I’ve played my records at Kode 9 show”, “I’ve started off to Kim Gordon”, “I’ve kept the thrill up after Fugazi’s live” and stuff like that. No doubt they are djs who love a challenge and are not afraid to try their hand, cocooned and supported by an ecosystem that leaves them free to explore.
