artEC/Oindustry is an interdisciplinary think tank with the aim to tackle communication between global/corporate and local entities through the arts, broadening their co-existence into a meaningful, participatory and responsible future.

the longterm strategy is to promote art-science ventures on industrial soil that induce access and transparency to industrial processes and to integrate these results into design policies of the future. Art and industry meet on industrial soil to map, challenge and evaluate the dialogue between the community, workers, the environment, the economical output, the local and global. Do the arts provide socio-economical and self-sustainable perspectives independent from the mining sector? In addressing our sensories, can the arts induce a sense of belonging that lead to a responsible approach to the landscape and its environment?
