At TEH Camp Meeting in Bagneux, seven Italian centres have decided to form a network of independent cultural centres – RICCI (Rete Italiana di Centri Culturali Indipendenti) that is also a new TEH Hub.

The objective of the network is to promote the value of cultural and creative spaces initiated by citizens and artists. The member centres are Interzona, Maniffature Knos, Zo Centro Culture Contemporanee, Ateliersi, DOM and Associazione Culturale Oltre.
The first events of the network will be taking place simultaneously in Bologna, Lecce and Catania on 17 November 2018.
Roda Sten Konsthall / Gothenburg, Sweden
Göteborg International Biennial for Contemporary Art
Göteborg International Biennial for Contemporary Art (GIBCA) is organised by Röda Sten Konsthall and takes place every two years in Gothenburg, Sweden. Started in 2001, it has established itself as one of Sweden’s biggest art events and a relevant art biennial for the Nordic region. For its 10th edition in 2019, the biennial will re-consider its format and extend beyond its implied temporality by inviting a curator, Lisa Rosendahl, to work with the two upcoming editions. Lisa’s extensive knowledge of the Nordic art scene, an informed international perspective and a context-specific approach will bring the biennial to a new level and closer to the local community.
GIBCA 2019 will run from September 7th to November 17th and will take place at Röda Sten Konsthall and collaborative arenas throughout the city of Gothenburg.
