About WAO
WAO – OPEN ART WEEK is an international platform of independent art spaces.

WAO – OPEN ART WEEK finds their origin in the current core transformations in the contemporary art field, regarding the modality of production, circulation and exchanges with the public, in the Mediterranean context. Due to these challenges, the project proposes the creation of an international network of independent spaces, based in three fields of intervention: the cartography of independent participating spaces; the mobility of artists and cultural managers; and the co-organisation of an itinerant Art Week.

Thanks to the organisation of Open Art Week touring in all participating cities, WAO since its first edition in 2018 has supported the mobility of more than 40 artistic events and 52 artists featured by a network of 30 multidisciplinary art industries and non-profit organisations.
In 2019 WAO has been selected by UNESCO among the projects “which had an impact in the culture transformation from 2011 to 2018”.
