NITTYGRITTY TALKs

part of NittyGritty Club project 

20th November 2015 - Teatrino Groggia

December 2015 - Chiesa 5th della Fava 

Venice

public talks

 

 

 

 

 

The relationship between our bodies and the architecture of the cities, the possibility of narrating ourselves, the heteronormative concept of sexuality, the values of public art.


Aside from NittyGritty night events, a series of public talks took place in Venetian churches and theaters to open a dialogue with informal groups of citizens, researchers and LQBTQ associations about the same topics tackled by the club events.
