CITY OF THE FUTURE
S+T+ARTS Regional Center: Open Call for Artists
How can Arts, Science and Technology contribute to a more sustainable, inclusive and democratic future?
Nesta Italia, supported by Fondazione Compagnia di San Paolo and the European Commission, launches "City of the future" with the aim of enhancing the collaboration among European artists, tech companies and research centres based in the Piedmont region, in developing innovative, sustainable and more human-centred applications of emerging technologies applied to the urban context.
The open call is addressed to Artists, Collective and Creatives from Italy and all over Europe to present artistic concepts based on emerging technologies (e.g. AI, Big Data, Blockchain, 5G, IoT), considering their applications and usability into an urban and social context (for example, projects aimed at finding medtech solutions for COVID19 or solutions to enhance an ecological transition).
Deadline: 30 November 2020
