Research Community – Co.R

The Research Community (Co.R) is a permanent space of reflection and interdisciplinary research, structurally connected with Altofest.

In the frame of the Co.R artists, researchers and scholars, bringing multiple perspectives and competencies, collaborate for the creation of “practices of reflection” and discussion spaces, with the aim to elaborate the aesthetic, poetic and political questions raised by the fest.

Thus the path of a choral discourse emerges and evolves together with Altofest.

The activities of the Research Community involve the Altofest´s community and are recorded in different text formats that are going to preserve the memory of the experiences, processes and relationships generated by Altofest.

Starting from this Ninth Edition, the Co.R develops and gives continuity to the work of the Critique Panel, that accompanied Altofest from 2012 to 2021.


A description of the Critique Panel (OCR) activities and a list of its members year by year can be found visiting Altofest Archive of Past Edition in the general menu.


The Journal

Conceived as an aesthetic guide that combines the theoretical approach with the programmed artistic proposals.
