SHAPING THE FUTURE
The project “Shaping the Future” is the result of a call for proposals by Europa Creativa, the European Commission's 2021-2027 programme of support for the arts and cultural sectors.
This project is based on the idea that digital and technological tools will enable us to imagine the future and its complexity, and change it accordingly.
Its primary objective is to develop and validate a model for supporting designers and visual artists in the creation of future-oriented art projects, while enhancing their skills in the use of digital technologies and methods.
The strength of this project lies in the international partnership of four organisations dedicated to the transversal training of young artists on a daily basis.
Each partner has specific expertise in one of the areas related to creativity, the arts, and digital technologies.
Accademia di Belle Arti Aldo Galli (ABAAG)
As project leader, the Accademia di Belle Arti Aldo Galli coordinates and monitors the activities throughout the project. Since 2010, the Academy, an institution of historical excellence in the field of High Artistic Education in the Como area, has been a member of the IED network. Accredited by the Italian Ministry for University and Research, the organisation aims to promote Made in Italy culture through innovation in fashion, the visual arts, and the preservation of cultural heritage.
CityFab1 - Bruxelles (CF1)
FabLab, established five years ago in Brussels, is one of three FabLabs in the Belgian capital. It is committed to providing citizens with access to its workshops and to offering specialized training in the use of machinery through thematic workshops open to all. In offering workshops to individuals from a variety of backgrounds, CityFab1 aims to provide a forum for exchanging, sharing, and training technical expertise, with the ultimate goal of inventing, manufacturing, and producing in line with contemporary production needs.
Drustvo Ljudmila Laboratorij Za Znanost In Umetnost (LASL).
Ljudmila Art and Science Laboratory consists of a non-profit organisation based in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
For many decades, it is committed to connecting art and technology, supporting young artists, advocating open culture, licensing, and free software, as well as encouraging innovative artistic practices.
Moholy-nagy Muveszeti Egyetem (MOME).
A historical institution in Budapest, Hungary, Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design provides education in the fields of art, design, and communication to creative and professional people. The university offers programmes in art, architecture, design and visual communication.
The main goals of the programme are:
- Protecting, developing and promoting the European cultural and linguistic diversity as well as heritage
- Strengthening the competitiveness and economic potential of the cultural and creative sectors, in particular the audiovisual sector.
This project will develop collaborations and partnerships with local and national institutions and bodies over the course of 24 months, enabling the creation of a network to support young artists.
A highlight of the project will be a residency where artists from all over Europe can interact with each other and acquire digital arts skills through the involvement of international experts. The training week will take place at the Aldo Galli Academy in Como during the summer of 2023.
During the training, the artists will have the opportunity to develop a virtual exhibition, which will be launched in Brussels, the heart of Europe.
