The Roberto Cimetta Fund is pleased to announce that a knowledge sharing forum will be set up by the beginning of April 2014 in a spirit of international collaboration and generosity. The network of artists initiated by the Roberto Cimetta Fund all from the Arab world and the wider Europe. The main objectives are to share knowledge on the conditions in which the participants of the forum are working particularly in the Arab and Balkan regions, to communicate the similarities and dissimilarities of these conditions, to identify the specific and shared problems or challenges faced by the members, to collectively search for solutions that can be implemented (reciprocally or effectively) and elaborate realistic strategies through collective actions or support through members’ own communities or countries.
