- Weekly residential modules at Cittadellarte: a programme of seminars and laboratories open to students, professionals, social entrepreneur, activists and members of society, developed following a participatory teaching format, based on collective debates and knowledge exchange between mentor and participants. The modules draw some of their core case studies from Geographies of Change, a participatory online archive collecting and interlinking organisations active in the fields of governance and policy-making, alternative economic models, urban systems, environment, education and communication.
Mentors are often former UNIDEE residents, participants to visible project and to ARTInRETI platforms, ambassadors for Third Paradise, Cittadellarte’s current and past associates. Amongst the new collaborators, scholars and researchers, curators, cultural operators, agents of change within specific territorial realms.
Aimed at delving into three broad thematic areas, which represent the first lemmas for the construction of a Triennal (2015-2017) Shared Collective Vocabulary of Ideas on Cittadellarte’s Art and Social Responsible Transformation, developed across UNIDEE - University of Ideas’ educational programme. This Vocabulary intends to make available the theoretical and project materials used by the mentors and the speakers, and produced by the participants throughout the weekly modules.
- Seminar modules outside Cittadellarte in collaboration with universities, Fine Arts academies, artistic research centres in Europe and beyond addressed to graduate and postgraduate students, PhD students and researchers.

- Residency programmes at Cittadellarte for international artists, organised in collaboration with institutional partners, e.g. RESO’ network, A. M. QattanFoundation (Palestine), Inlaks Shivdasani Foundation (India), aiming at educating and producing. During their stay at Cittadellarte the artists are accompanied along an educational path based on an in-depth analysis of specific issues in relation to a responsible social transformation. A flexible programme encompassing debate series, meetings with curators, artists and social entrepreneurs, experts’ studio visits, conferences with guests, visits to exhibitions and places relevant to the themes discussed, etc., will be the companion to this residential journey. In terms of production, the residency aims at facilitating the creation of new projects for exhibitions, events, public debates, publications etc.
