The Piemonte Share Festival, now in its tenth year, is organised by the Sharing cultural association with the support of the Department for Cultural Affairs of the Regione Piemonte. The Share Prize is a competition established in 2007 for modern digital community and installations providing a sense of affinity. Displays of award-winning works, projects, performances, workshops, and screenings are held at the Temporary Museum and three other venues in Turin: the Casa Jasmina at the FabLab, Bunker, and the Amantes culture club. “Autonomy” is the theme for the current festival. The aim is to examine society and technology through the key words of the previous festivals.
