The Art of transitioning - artistic contribution towards inclusive, aesthetic and sustainable future
Thursday 21 September
11.00 – 12.30
Sala Sur 10
In this workshop the participants are invited to jointly explore the role of art and artistic practice in societal transitions. After experiencing an artist-led section, we will reflect on how art relates to, and facilitates, the NEB-principles of inclusion, aesthetics and sustainability, and how a public administration can take action to further integrate artists and art.
