Talk and live performance Instagram to broadcast the RUFA – Experience to those who feed on art. This is the scenario that has led the Academy of Fine Arts legally recognized by the Mur, to plan a series of activities that, starting from social activities, can contribute to nourish the sense of belonging and identity to the international art – system. The lack of culture, understood from the point of view of the cancellation of exhibitions or events, cannot be used as an alibi, but must serve to open more than one reflection, in the awareness that it is necessary to rethink the present in order to evoke a future. It is a comparison to which everyone can contribute, both in terms of the most instinctive and the most reasoned aspects, in a perfect dualism between action and thought.
RUFA has chosen its Instagram @rufa_university account to give shape and substance to this discussion, confronting experts and artists, teachers and perfomers, in an always innovative and never trivial formula, already tested last May with the live broadcast that, among others, involved ZeroCalcare and Daniele Ciprì. There are four appointments that in the next three weeks will involve practically all the Academy’s courses.
