Serralves S+T+ARTS Talk
THE EMERGING ROLE OF THE ARTS IN THE GREEN DIGITAL TRANSITION – THE CASE OF PORTUGAL
How the collaboration between entrepreneurs, science, technology and the arts is crucial for contemporary economies and societies?
The Serralves Foundation takes on as its Mission to stimulate interest and knowledge in contemporary art, in architecture, in the landscape and in themes critical to society and its future, namely in the scope of sustainability and science and technology.
Starting from an integrating vision that promotes innovation processes, Serralves intends to deepen and stimulate the relationship between art, science and technology.
In this context, the Foundation presents a new cycle of conversations entitled SERRALVES S+T+ARTS TALKS. These talks will promote a debate based upon concrete activities, already carried out or still ongoing under the European Union (EU) Single Digital Market Initiative (EU) S+T+ARTS – Science, Technology and the Arts.
The first talk will focus on the Portuguese and European context, discussing the emerging role of the arts in promoting and implementing the green digital transition. Portuguese cases will be addressed, in the context of the current EU presidency, and links will be established to the European Digital Innovation Poles as well as possible contributions from national organizations to this transformation.
“The emerging role of the arts in the green digital transition – the case of Portugal: how the collaboration between entrepreneurs, science, technology and the arts is crucial for contemporary economies and societies”, will host the Secretary of State for Digital Transition, André de Aragão Azevedo, the President of the Board of Directors of the Serralves Foundation, Ana Pinho, the Senior Expert at the European Commission, Ralph Dum, MEP Eva Kaili and artist Leonel Moura. The debate will be moderated by Luis Miguel Girão, specialist in the processes of interaction between art, science and technology.
