One of the features of new edition of Switch on your Creativity goes beyond creativity as generally known. Our project has grown during Milano EXPO 2015 and has become a concrete opportunity to improve skills on continuous stimulus for that concerns our “Charter of Values for Youth Creativity”; if we consider creativity as fundamental for innovation and in particular for those companies that make innovation as core aspect in their structure we easily find a common point of joint between creativity and start up companies.
That’s why for current edition we decided to focus on creativity in wider perspective including also creativity as winning feature for start up companies in comparison with traditional productive and business environment.
For this reason during “Switch on Your Creativity 2015 / 2016 – The Gala Night in Milan” fixed for 12 of October at Novotel Ca’ Granda, beyond presentation of creative project that made possible the establishment of new start up company operating from Milan on chinese market in field of services and communication, we are going to launch a new platform that will support during next edition the selection of innovative concepts that will get concrete benefits offered by partnered organizations operating with specialistic services for internationalization of start up companies towards two macro-areas (USA and China).
This venture “Plan of Milan for Creativity as Innovation” promoted by Asian Studies Group for Switch on Your Creativity has become possible with collaboration of strategical partners operating on services for internationalization, startup environment as long as innovation and digitalization: Promos (special agency for internationalization, part of Chamber of Commerce of Milan) in collaboration with NIBI – New Institute for International Business of Milan will offer to start up companies from Milan’s area an exclusive opportunity to get selected and join to executive training and correlated services for internationalization, Italia Start Up, national association for start up companies and Netcomm, Consortium for e-commerce will organize an open call for “Plan of Milan for Creativity as Innovation” among startup companies scenario.

Further details about “Plan of Milan for Creativity as Innovation” as part of Switch on your Creativity 2016 / 2017 will be announced during the Gala Night and through our official communication’s channel and partners.
Korean Wunderkammer by Orange Bridge, a Korean art movement created in Milan, has been selected as a creative project for art section in the third edition of the Switch On Your Creativity, “Kaleidoscope Nature, Man at the Mirror”. The Collective exhibition that presents artworks by more than 150 contemporary korean artists, sums up very well the concept of research on the nature of art, the human society, as well as the relationship between cultural traditions of origins and insights from the West.
Over twenty artists under 35 years old are participating in the group’s exhibition and they are strengthening a well framed dialogue focused on youth participation that brings Korea close to Milan as the European capital of creativity (as defined officially by Minister of Industry Trade and Energy of Republic of Korea in Milan during the 130th anniversary of bilateral relations Italy Korea in June 2014) .
The exhibition “Korean Wunderkammer” will take place at Fondazione Luciana Matalon on 7 of July. It perfectly represents an equilibrated synthesis of Asian and Western dialectic and offers a contemporary sight through millenary culture. In these pieces, the national artistic soul meets the influences from west, and the tradition reinvents itself with new experiments.
This collective exhibition is like a call back to the roots, to the cultural fundamentals deeply shaken by radical economic, social and political changes that brought Korea on international scene. However, the exhibited works are like a pragmatic tale, more than a traditional one, where artists bring out a silent awareness and attitude, and are looking to rediscover their history and original individuality.
The journey through the “windows of curiosity“, typical European collecting, thrills in this “Korean” re-reading and stimulates the need for a comparison that is never satisfied when it comes to mutual understanding and inspiration.
CM Design studio founded by Jin Ma from Nanjing and Chen Bi Hong from Hunan in Milan is the new joiner of the contest Switch on Your Creativity for fashion & design section. In fact these two young chinese creatives are producing the first collection of new fashion brand created following our topic “Kaleidoscopic Nature”.

As cross cultural conjunction between Italy and China through Fashion could be perfectly represented by number 17.
The official presentation of SENZA collection in Milan will take place in special location supported by our organization and it will be not only a glamorous event in perfect fashion night’s style typical of Milan but it will be the perfect occasion to present the deep study among shapes, colors and technique and it will reveal the presence of dynamic generation of chinese people who are anxious to be part of our Made in Italy system. They started as students but now they are approaching professional life in Milan and they wanna be part of the italian excellences.
For this first collection the research has been focused on “body links”, well framed analysis of those parts, shapes, configurations specifically owned by nature and at the same time developed in different ways for the human sphere, it’s something that keep natura and humanity well connected like common genoma: Keep the act of the nature on pursuing your daily style

The third edition of Switch On Your Creativity is a platform to develop and promote well framed creative and dynamic contents concerning cross cultural dialogue on topic titled “kaleidoscopic nature”.
As we have already introduced on informative page of this website, for the current edition we decided to select contents, events and projects following six different categories.
Today we are pleased to mention one important event that has been selected by our organization to join our Switch on your Creativity as official nominee for Music, Dance and Show Section .
The first Asian Dance & Voice Contest organized by Soul Arts Company in cooperation with cultural association Motofumetto, promotes youth creativity through music and dance from pop music tradition from Korea, China and Japan.
The show takes place in Milan at Teatro Menotti on 2nd of April from 10 am and will host groups of guys and girls from every part of Italy whom will “fight” performing with K-pop, J-pop and C-pop.
Italian and Asians living in Italy will try to create original choreographies dancing and singing in different languages.
The project has been selected for this edition of Switch on Your Creativity cause it totally embraces some crucial points of our Charter of Value for Youth Creativity, in particular those aspects that concern cross culture and international cooperation and dialogue sustained with modern tools among young people.
Then it matches also with our topic “Kaleidoscopic Nature, man at the mirror” because of the liaison that dance and music can figure out for some introspective elements. Sometimes dancing and music represent an important way to explore human feeling, on giving voice to personal dreams or to express hope and energy for better future, especially among young people.
We wish all the best and good luck to these young performers and we are pleased to invite you to join the show in Milan!
