art+icteLearningworld News from Europe

A new report from the EU Commission called “ICT Art Connect Activities Linking ICT and Art” shows ground-breaking effects of connecting art and ICT in e.g. education. “To think out-of-the-box is a well-known objective in innovation processes. Artists, however, are more interested in getting rid of the box.” This is a vision that works perfectly in accordance with the open source ideology of the web. From this perspective the EU-project STARTS – Science, Technology and the Arts will bring together artists and researchers to creatively innovate in ICT. With the far reaching goal to build successful stories and projects, it can be enabled to redefine research, innovation, social change and education on a wider and more permanent base in the coming years.
