ARSCIENTIA is a new format for bringing together the fields of art, science and enterprise that will demonstrate the value of the potential for innovation. Through moments of dialogue and discussions on the trends and scenarios running across art and science, we want to stimulate young creative minds to believe in their ideas and to structure them so that they become real projects.
ARSCIENTIA will develop through two principal formulas: Dialogues and Events. The Dialogues will be conversations with creative people (local and international scientists, entrepreneurs and artists) in the framework of the Istituto Veneto di Scienze, Lettere ed Arti a Venezia.
In the Events, which will be held in Treviso, Vicenza, Verona and Trieste, we will try things out in person. Opening the doors of their own branches, Veneto Banca—the principal sponsor of the project—will become the meeting point for a round-up of innovative ideas developed by young creative minds with the help of professional coaches.
The connections between art, science and enterprise will become even more visible as participants compete to win the Arscientia Prize, which is open to people of all ages who have highly innovative ideas. The goal of the prize is to stimulate new “Artscientists” to conceive, present and develop innovative products and processes with the capacity to concretely represent the philosophy of Arscientia.
Arscientia will work with the creators of these ideas for an entire year, from May 2012 to June 2013, making use of partnerships with the Università Ca’ Foscari di Venezia, l’Istituto Veneto di Scienze, Lettere ed Arti, l’Istituto Europeo di Design di Venezia, Moleskine and the media partnership of Il Sole 24 Ore.
