For innovation to be of value for society, not only scientific and technological skills are needed. Critical skills and creativity rooted in artistic practices offer valuable contributions. The expertise and practice of artists can directly drive and influence innovation in different fields, like environmental sustainability, area development, or healthcare. Art offers new perspectives, inspires new directions and acts as a catalyst for a successful and socially responsible transformation of new technologies into new products, services, and processes and new economic, social and business models. As part of the STARTS Talks series, we will highlight different international ánd local examples of promising collaborations between the private sector and the world of art and culture, together with the STARTS Prize 2018 winner. We will discuss how we can make technology more human, citizens more smart and societies more inclusive.
Afterwards, you are invited to join the Grand Opening of GET LOST – art route 2018, in front of Circl. After the official opening at 5.00 PM, there will be guided tours, drinks, performances (a.o. at BPD, limited capacity) and an afterparty at Tripolis!
