Delegates refer to artistic practices, to the role of artistic actions, as well as, to the organization and importance of independent artistic networks, seek creative dialogue, present their own experiences and concerns. At the same time, they aim at creative dialogue, present their own experiences and reflections, emphasize the value of collaborations and synergies, of participation and interaction, advocate the connection of art with real life, defend alternative ways of intervening and critical viewing of historical time, political and social reality, defining an open communication platform.
