artEC/Oindustry is an interdisciplinary think tank with the aim to tackle communication between global/corporate and local entities through the arts, and to broaden their co-existence into meaningful, participatory and responsible futures.
the longterm strategy is to promote art-science-society interventions 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, the miners, the environment, the scientific debate, the economical output, the local and the global. Do the arts provide socio-economical and self-sustainable perspectives that are independent from the mining sector? In addressing our sensories, can the arts induce a sense of belonging that lead to a responsible approach the environment?
