The challenges we face today, like climate change, water scarcity and the increase of inequality, are calling us to transform the way we think and act in order to create a better future.
We cannot solve problems with the same thinking that created them,
Art + Tech Society believes a better future can be created, by stimulating people to develop a new cultural mindset; one that uses art to make sense of the new world and uses technology and entrepreneurship to empower people to collaborate for a common purpose. In this new mindset, people become more self-, socially- and environmentally- aware of their impact, as individual and part of a collective; technological and artistic creativity come together to make people happy and live well; everyone is valued and respected and in which civilization appreciates the intrinsic value of the natural environment so that innovation has a positive ecological impact.
Art + Tech Society (ATS) is a new and non-profit foundation, established in Eindhoven, committed to contribute to make this envisioned future by using art, technology and entrepreneurship in an impactful way. 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.
