Home Magazine Trento Art Festival: an alternative and experimental platform for a traditional art event

Art and culture will always live as experimental and vivid grounds. It is therefore fundamental for new ideas and trends to emerge. In a few days, in the Autonomous Province of Trento, a new Festival will begin: Trento Art Festival. During its first edition, Trento Art Festival will connect, display and show the work of 25 different realities engaged with contemporary culture, performance, music and visual art.

From February 24th to the 28th, art galleries, artist collective, festivals and independent projects, creative incubators and prizes are melted together for “a light experience, a moment of dialogue, to exchange information and expand a network of contacts in a smart and economical way. A lean platform, ecological and alternative to the crisis of traditional fairs”. 

Trento Art Festival will introduce a certain attitude for this 2021: a festival thought to be entirely online. In this occasion, independent and collective realities will demonstrate how ideas, works of art and performances can be immersive and fundamental even during our new digital era. Moreover, for its first edition Trento Art Festival will focus on a special Country guest: Greece. With the patronage of the Autonomous Region of Trentino-Alto Adige / Südtirol, of the Autonomous Province of Trento of the Municipality of Trento and the CAI Club Italian Alpine, this experimental Festival has in fact a strong International feature that is also reflected in its team with its several young memebrs coming from all over the world.

Let’s enjoy this itinerary that will lead us to the discovery of what art can constantly do. The Festival will be visible online via trentoartfestival.it and it will also include a prize, the Trento Art Prize.
