Acca cultural association was established in 2014 with the aim to give visibility to artists working in Torino and to promote the relationships with the audience in their own creative space: the artist’s atelier.Well aware of the fast and multiple changes taking place in the arts system, the six founding members, working in Torino and operating at national and international level, wish to offer an answer to the growing interest towards contemporary art and to the need of creating collaborations between local and international artists. Acca thus aims to form a network of artists’ ateliers located in different European countries, promoting initiatives among subjects in different cultural and artistic fields.
