Abstract:

  • The electronic arts could become a powerful tool of awareness and transformation in times of ecological threats. Can the electronic arts help to save the world? As an outcome of the BALANCE-UNBALANCE conferences a large project involving artists with the Red Cross/Red Crescent Climate Centre humanitarian organization is being developed. The conferences brought together artists, scientists, economists, philosophers, politicians, sociologists, engineers, managers and policy experts with the intent of engendering consciousness and creating lasting intellectual working partnerships in solving our global environmental crisis. Using art as a catalyst, these two conferences explored intersections between nature, art, science, technology and society. Do you want to know more or eventually join us? The project will be introduced during this presentation, when full information will be available and our next steps will be presented.
