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 a nature-centric prosperity. We do and will activate and empower people, organizations and communities to collaborate.
We aim to become an impactful platform 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 two complementary activities:
- Cultural Expeditions are open events in which people can reflect on societal paradigms (mental models) to start proposing alternative paths that lead us to a better future.
- Transition Lab is a current community of multi-cultural and multi-disciplinary professionals and students who will work on making Eindhoven, a more nature-inclusive city.

“Regenerative Food Systems”
Date: Friday April 1st, from 17:30 to 20:30
On April 1st, we invite you to come and imagine with us what a society which has adopted regenerative agricultural practices might look like.
You don’t have to be expert on the topic but be curious about how we can start designing different approaches.
During the 3hr workshop, you and your team will have enough time to discuss, to imagine and to write a creative story in a not so distant future where regenerative food systems are taking root.
Online and Interactive Talk:
“Co-creating Reality: the need of a new perspective to build a better world” by Sarah Durston, PhD

The current reductionist way to see and understand life has limitations when comes to researching key topics like values or psychiatry on human beings. During this talk you will hear about the need of a subjective, first-person, systematic methodology and exploration which can also lead us to co-create the world we want to inhabit.
Near Futures Editions:
“Regenerative Food Systems”
Date: Friday February 26th, from 18:30 to 21:30
Rethinking our food systems ( from what arrives in our plates to those producing and transporting it) is a challenging yet crucial task to ensure a more sustainable future for generations to come.
During this workshop, you will be challenged to envision a future society which has adopted regenerative agricultural practices.
