The EU-funded project ICT & Art Connect sets out to bring together artists and technologists to explore new ways of working. Collaborative acts of co-creation, together with an open and multidisciplinary discussion will foster the blending of Art and Technology. The coordination action FET-ART has played a crucial role in helping advance this initiative by a set of activities that allowed practitioners in technology and the Arts to meet, collaborate and discuss the future of such collaborations.

On May 11-12 the FET-ART Final Event – ICT & Art Connect so far: elements to orient the future will close in Brussels the activities of the FET-ART project and present its major achievements and policy recommendations at the European Commission. Launched in June 2013, FET-ART, in a few months, succeeded in organising several consultation and matchmaking events across Europe, and in supporting 18 residencies developing pilot projects centred on co-creation and citizen engagement in ICT. The projects developed through the residency programme will be presented in a show and tell exhibition curated by Black Cube Collective (BCC) and hosted by FoAM. See the full program here.

FET-ART consortium is made of Sigma Orionis (coordinator), Brunel University, Stromatolite, Waag Society and Black Cube Collective.

The event admission is free. Please register here.
