The S+T+ARTS initiative merges Science, Technology, and the Arts.
It attempts to remove the boundaries between art and engineering to stimulate 
creativity and innovation.

The twentieth century was characterized by an ever stronger presence of technology in contemporary art, technology which, over the course of the last century, increasingly pervaded our culture, lives, and work.

The very concept of work of art, of unique artwork, was dramatically changed by the birth of photography, cinema, and the Internet. 
However, in more recent decades, a parallel process has taken place in the opposite direction:
in a world where, because of the digital information revolution, the various disciplines are getting increasingly intertwined and mutually complementary, how can contemporary art and technological innovation stimulate each other and cooperate to promote corporate creativity?

This workshop will be focusing on some research results on the interaction between contemporary art, science and technology. International experiences by research institutes, artists and pathfinder projects carried out within the European S+T+ARTS and FET initiatives under Horizon2020 programme will be presented.

The aim is to exchange ideas on how to develop new innovative processes out of the encounter between artists, engineers, and scientists, who normally work independently of each other. This should in turn lead to actual project ideas for both industry and urban spaces. This half-a-day workshop will feature two different sections:
HOW ARTISTS ENVISAGE HUMAN SPACE” and “EXPERIENCES IN TECHNOLOGIES AND ARTS

The workshop is related to the temporary exhibition held at the Contemporary Art Museum of Genova, Villa Croce, in the context of the Genoa Science Festival.
