Two curators/producers/festival directors will propose a workshop-like process where they'll be guiding the audience into building an experimental, out of the box curatorial project for an imaginary musical event. The format of the presentation is divided in three sections: starting with one quick video presentation of the three festivals (6 min), followed by a quick explanation of the events, each one highlighting a particular curatorial case (9 min); the second section is a workshop in groups to build special curatorial propositions, with the use of a selection of artists from the past editions of the three festivals (15 min); the last section will handle the presentations of each group's project/event with a final open debate (15 min).
