Garfagnana Chairart is a ‘Community Arts’ project in Northern Tuscany. It encourages participation without censorship and without judgement. Over the first 7 years, since it’s inception, it has inspired more than 150 mostly local people to create 300 works of art. This website aims to provide Information about Chairart and also to provide a comprehensive archive of all that has been achieved so far.
Garfagnana Chairart originated in Fosciandora (Tuscany, in the province of Lucca) from within the small village of Treppignana. It was launched in 2010 with the intention of encouraging creative participation locally for artists and also for those who had no previous experience of participation in public art events.
