We aim to give a new impulse to the innovation heritage of Eindhoven.
Who we are
Art + Tech Society (ATS) is a new and non-profit foundation, established in Eindhoven, committed to contribute to the creation of a better world by using art, technology and entrepreneurship as enablers of social innovation. We do and will activate and empower people, organizations and communities to collaborate.
We aim to become an impactful think-tank that creates knowledge and know-how, perhaps even wisdom, through organizing exhibitions, workshops and meetings in which reflection and awareness take place and people are given the means to start making change happen.
What we do
ATS’ ambitions are not small. We will, however, start in a local and small way with four complementary activities:
- Cultural Expeditions will be open events in which people can reflect on societal paradigms (mental models) to start proposing alternative paths that lead us to a better future.
- New Mindset Toolkit will be a series of training sessions where participants can start developing abilities needed to create meaningful innovations.
- Future Making Think Tank will be multi-organizational team of leaderes that will focus on proposing a more Human Prosperity for the city of Eindhoven.
- Creative Makers is a current community of multi-cultural and multi-disciplinary professionals and students who will work on making Eindhoven, a more inclusive city.
