S+T+ARTS is an initiative of the European Commission to foster alliances involving science, technology, and the arts. Its goal is to implement a European approach to technological innovation that is centered on human needs and values.
Science, technology and the arts form a nexus with an extraordinarily high potential for creative and reflective innovation. In order to take advantage of these opportunities, the project Air for European Resilience (AIR) is for the first time making available to artists the technology and know-how of two of Europe’s leading supercomputing centers: the High-Performance Computing Center Stuttgart and the Barcelona Supercomputing Center. S+T+ARTS AIR brings together eight organizations from five countries that have expertise in different fields of knowledge – technology, research, industry, and culture. Together, they will establish new methodologies and processes for incorporating the arts into scientific discovery and digital innovation (and vice versa), demonstrating the value of systematic, long-term collaboration.
To this end, AIR will host 10 S+T+ARTS residencies for artists. The concept of air will also provide a common and overarching theme for the artists’ creative work.
In an era in which science and technology are driving forces, but can become disconnected from citizen participation and what is essentially human, this project underlines the importance of the cultural and creative industries in increasing Europe’s competitiveness and stimulating innovation. It offers a path to move toward a more sustainable future, face new and systemic challenges, and anticipate the future of society.
