This year, as well as domestic rollout of the project, activities of art project TURN are also scheduled on the ground during the Rio de Janeiro 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
In the run-up to that, the Talk Series, Seven days I TURN toward you to be held this coming June will look at the possible ways that TURN, which will welcome a diverse array of discerning and insightful guests and work creatively to develop ways of encountering and connecting with a wide range of people, will pan out in the setting of Brazil.
Additionally, by rethinking ways to run sustainable cultural enterprise, this talk series will consider possible methods of linking practices in Brazil with subsequent culture programs.
