S+T+ARTS project in Piedmont

With the launch of the open call “City of the future” we have started the S + T + ARTS project in Piedmont. From next week, during a series of online meetings, we will tell you more about the other initiatives planned, the objectives of the project and the organisations that have chosen to support it.

Contaminations between Arts, Science, Technology – New pathways of innovation

Friday 13 November at 4:00 p.m. (CET) we will be live for a talk organised with the contribution of  CRT Foundation. The aim of the meeting is to share experiences and models of cross-sectoral collaboration, to discover the different opportunities for dialogue between industry, scientific research and the creative sector.

How can artists and creatives then contribute to innovation? We will talk about it with Giulia Tomasello (Interaction Designer, STARTS Prize Winner 2018), Erica Villa (Head of Programming, Science Gallery Venice), Jasmina Tesanovic (Writer and Activist), Prof. Mario Rasetti (President, ISI Foundation).

Saturday 14 November at the new online edition of Biennale Tecnologia we host a panel focused on the key role of artists and creatives in collaboration with companies and research centres for regional and territorial development. We will discuss how technology and science, thanks to artistic exploration, can contribute to promoting  sustainability, inclusion and social impact of technologies within cities.

The first part ( 2-3 p.m. CET) will be dedicated to a comparison between the visions of the organisations supporting the project in the Piedmont area and the European Commission, promoter of the S + T + ARTS project.
