WHO WE ARE
The cultural association Yourban was born 2007 and found its home in may 2008. The headquarters is in Thiene, in the province of Vicenza. A industrial factory building of about 500 square meter, is transformed into a multipurpose space at service of various forms of artistic expressionl. A meeting point that, initially, has devoted itself to the young people of the area, but that collects from time to time the interest of a larger target of people, which are passionately interested in the cultural offer of the association.
In five years, the project Yourban evolves and feeds a network of relationships, which gave birth to several projects, all around the Veneto Region, in collaboration with different Municipality on the province of Vicenza and the Veneto Region as well. In our curriculum projects as Pulsart, Illustri, Story Corner and Officinegreen which involved thousands of people and a lot of young volunteers.
Story Corner is a series of meetings that organised every year, in the month of july, in the beautiful garden of Palazzo Cornaggia. A living room under the sky that hosts personality references of the world of culture, media and music.
