At the beginning of November, Manifesta 12 released two models of participation alongside the biennial’s main programme: the Manifesta 12 Collateral Events and the 5x5x5.
- Manifesta 12 Collateral Events is a specific invitation for cultural organizations and professionals to submit their proposals for side projects to take place during the Manifesta 12 biennial and benefit from Manifesta’s international reach. Collateral Events will not be part of the main biennial programme, but will be extensively featured, associated with and promoted through Manifesta 12 communication.

- 5x5x5 Program is a new model of Manifesta parallel programme. The goal of 5x5x5 is to foster an exchange between local professionals and Manifesta’s diverse international network of artists, creative producers, academic and educational institutions, thinkers and influential stakeholders, making sure that this synergy evolves into long-term collaborations and legacy for Palermo.

On Friday 17 November, from 5 to 7pm, Manifesta 12 hosted a first Info Day event at Teatro Garibaldi in order to answer questions and discuss the requirements for the Collateral Events and the 5x5x5 programmes.
In order to answer to people’s questions before the second and final deadline of the two open calls (15 January) the same Info Day event will be held again at Teatro Garibaldi on Wednesday 13 December, from 7pm to 9pm. The event free but seats are limited.
