Workshop Festival at Bosco Sociale Brescia, Italy with Terra e Partecipazione

The first toono festival in Italy took place at Bosco Sociale in Brescia 02. - 04.November 2017.

This beautiful young forest in the suburbian and agricultural landscape is the outcome of 
a group called Terra e Partecipazione, who dedicate their energy in creating a public place
to protect natural spaces in the city. An ongoing industrialisation and urbanization is threatening the diverse environment in this region. The group is working on public awareness.

toonomadic felt honored to be invited to this site. Together with Matrici Aperte and Terra e Partecipazione, we invited artists from Austria, France, Germany, Syria and Turkey to take part and offer free workshops.

Two days of workshops were offered to the public. Workshops were open for kids and adults.
