Venezia Contemporanea, established in 2007, is a non-profit organization situated in the historic Ghetto of Venice. Our primary objective is to support cultural endeavors that promote tolerance, coexistence, and raise awareness about racism and prejudices.
In collaboration with La Storta exhibition space and ScalaMata publishing, we offer partially sponsored residencies through our residency program, located in the historic Old Ghetto of Venice.
Furthermore, Venezia Contemporanea plays an active role in promoting and providing assistance to emerging artists. Additionally, we organize a diverse range of art and cultural events throughout the year, all centered around the theme of tolerance, concurrently with the esteemed Venice Art Biennale.
We have established partnerships with various exhibition spaces and galleries in Venice, utilizing these venues to host international art and cultural events. Notably, V.C. has forged collaborations with esteemed institutions such as Fondazione Bevilacqua La Masa, Detournement (a collateral event of the Venice Biennale), and the Department for Youth and Peace of the City of Venice.
We also work closely with local and international organizations dedicated to promoting inclusiveness and equality.
