The MAST Hybrid Interfacing Academy

September 7, 2020, 1:28 pm

In what way can the imagination of artists and their creativity tools bring about true novums at the crossings of technology and science, tackling the most complex challenges of the future, both for society at large, and the industries in particular? The MAST project jointly explores and identifies the vectors of possible policy impacts and priorities for the future of Europe as well as creates alliances for forward-thinking future actions. 

The many exciting activities of the MAST Hybrid Interfacing Academy during September 22-24, 2020, will feature a range of workshops, round tables, a symposium panel, and an exhibition. This project-concluding event brings together key players, thinkers, creators and decision-makers from the fields of art, science, industry and policymaking to attempt a bold shift towards new paradigms in industrial and social innovation.

On September 23rd, as part of the MAST Hybrid Interfacing Academy, Culture Action Europe’s Secretary General, Tere Badia, will be moderating the symposium panel, “Exploring innovation challenges through Arts, Science and Technology.” This panel will discuss the interdisciplinary challenges of open innovation in the interface of the Arts, Sciences and Technologies. Focusing on transversal competencies and unconventional thinking, this dialogue stimulates identification of innovative crossings¬† between science, technology, and human beings. The combination of artistic research and participatory design strategies is key to finding divergent approaches to sustainable development of science and technology, and to transform their social and economic impact. The discussion will focus on critical, ethical and sustainable ways of cross-collaboration between art-science-technology and the available and needed policy instruments to develop collaboration between artists, academia and industry.

Join the event here on September 23, 2020.
