One in three is out of work. Yet Italian reality is dotted with characters that each day with their skills and their knowledge draw a new future. Some are well-established talents, some just blossomed. Huge potential made of contemporary stories that speak the language of creativity and innovation. In a scenario where work is scarce, access to virtuous models that can be inspired is also lacking. We imagined an open space where to meet these talents and tell their experiences. A strategic and vital incubator of ideas, research and applied arts where access to resources, innovative ideas, useful relationships, and inspiration from the work of others. This is how the Future In Your Hands is born, created by the ARTZ cultural association in collaboration with the Municipality of Bra. An innovative and breath-taking festival in the tranquil northwestern province, where prevalence is not the usual Italian vetustra and gerontocratica but an Italian made of biodiversity and multidisciplinarity, talent and insights.


It is divided into three days, starting on Thursday 26 November 2015, the event, which has come to its fifth year of life, will propose various situations within which the selected talents will be openly confronted with the present audience. In the mornings of Thursday, Friday and Saturday, at the Polyphonic Center Giovanni Arpino di Bra, debates and meetings will be held, specifically addressed to students but open to the public.

Born in 1992 at Berrechid but raised in Milan, the young Moroccan rapper is one of the most exciting talents of the hip-hop Italian scene.
