Reliable is the person who relies himself.
Trusting means enriching, which leads to a friendship.
We get along because we trust each other.
Be suspicious is good, but trust is even better.What does it means to give custody of a public building to the citizens? How can they be always more involved in public participation? How can spaces be entrust to somebody else without waiting the timing of the public administration?

Those are the questions that lead the new edition of Gli Incontri del Terzo Luogo, supported by Krill Magazine, Apulia Film Commission, TOC Centre, Domicilio Rodogallo, Chourmo, Terminalia, Sementerie Artistiche, AAltra, Alternata and other partners.

On Friday 20th of April TOC-Centre will be introduced during a talk/work session of the meeting, that will be attended by the students of the Artistic High School “Ciardo Pellegrino” of Lecce, those of the University “Federico II” of Naples, and by the artist and film-maker Cosimo Terlizzi. The talk will be followed by a work session named “From Knos to TOC”, on parasitism, design and moving images.
