September is about our new program “Cultural Expeditions”
Do we need a paradigm shift to create a brighter future?
by Mayra Orteg-Maldonado
Date: Thursday Sep 10th at 17:45
Place: Kazerne, Eindhoven
About the presentation
To solve the problems that society currently encounters like climate change, COVID-19 pandemic, biodiversity loss, is necessary a shift on our societal paradigms (or mental models). ATS believes that as a society, we need to think and act differently in order to propose innovative solutions and paths that transform us to a better society. For this, at personal and community level, we need to develop and practice new soft abilities that enable us to envision and create together a city where all of us love to live in.
During this presentation, you will hear Art + Tech Society’s perspective on this paradigm shift and the actions that is taking to start creating change at local level.
Info about the speaker
Mayra is a sustainability consultant with experience developing sustainability-oriented projects. This experience has made her realized that empowerment of people and communities can radically change people’s life. In 2009, by following her passion for nature, she introduced the concept of Biomimicry in the Netherlands. And in 2016, she discovered the potentiality of the combination art, technology and entrepreneurship as societal change agents. This was the motto to initiate and now manage Art + Tech Society.
Equal Table – Open Discussion:
Do we need to change our relatioinship with the natural environment?
Moderated by Mayra Orteg-Maldonado
Date: Thursday Sep 10th at 18:30
Place: Kazerne, Eindhoven
About this open discussion
Equal table is a new type of workshop, interactive discussions. Promotes a positive conversation giving everyone involved a voice (even the ones who usually are more reluctant to speak) without judgement (every perspective is valid as long as its respectful). It also adds the value to not only focus on the what you are discussing, but also the how you are discussing it, from hearing feedback from other participants on how you were perceived.
During this event, you will share your thoughs and experiences with people with different opinion. This can make you reflect on own thoughs, learn from new perspectives and feel empathy for others.
