»Repairing the Present« addresses the challenges of contemporary society by integrating an artistic perspective into the innovation process. With the help of the EU initiative S+T+ARTS, artists will not only act as observers or critics of the social fabric, but actively participate in the process of social and economic innovation.
During the symposium we invite different actors of the so-called Creative Industris to apply two projects of »Repairing the Present« to concrete situations: in search of technological, environmental, economic and social innovation impacts. Although the projects were carried out locally, in close collaboration between artists, grantees and innovation catalysts, they can have a global impact.
Our goal is to strengthen the network, economic options and knowledge exchange, so that the projects of »Repairing the Present« see themselves as a starting point.
