WeSTART Online Meetup – FOCUS ON
S+T+ARTS IMPACT ON MANUFACTURING
Advanced technologies are rapidly changing a growing number of manufacturing sectors. Manufacturing is no longer about making physical products. Changes in consumer demand, the nature of products, the economics of production, and the economics of the supply chain have led to a fundamental shift in the way companies do business.
As a response to this S+T+ARTS engages industry, technology, end-users, and artists in a broad artistic exploration of technologies with the aim of creating novel sustainable products, processes and services that respond better to human needs.
This session will bring together experts from the S+T+ARTS projects Better Factory, Re-Fream and Vojext.
Since its beginning, the S+T+ARTS programme has been exploring how the combination of arts, science and technology can help us to create a better, more sustainable future. The current crisis and the need for new sustainable solutions amplifies the importance of S+T+ARTS as never before.
As a response to the COVID crisis we started the first WeSTART sessions in spring 2020. Now it is time for new season that promises to unveil more about the impact of S+T+ARTS and contribute to strengthen and support its growing community.
Alongside the best S+T+ARTS projects and cutting-edge speakers, the upcoming programme also wants to provide a place for our community to network and discuss.
Reflecting this, we introduce two formats of monthly online talks and conversations:
– FOCUS ON: the “Focus On” sessions features some of the best speakers and S+T+ARTS projects, aimed at showing the impact of S+T+ARTS in diverse domains of society.
– COMMUNITY GATHERING: during the monthly “Community Gathering” sessions we invite our registered community members to join us for an open and informal discussion. This is the place where we like to share thoughts, practice new forms of collective thinking and provide a platform for creating new inspiring connections.
