STO UNION and PAF join forces in this new community collaboration called Intersections.
Bringing together knowledge holders from the digital world, creative processes from the artistic world and inspiration from the public, the project’s goal is to find the intersections between all three: arts, digital technologies and communities.
We are currently experiencing one of the largest technological leaps in the history of humankind. All of us reading this now are living through it and it is affecting our lives in ways we don’t fully yet understand. Making art out what we don’t yet fully understand is one of human’s most ancient tools: it grounds us, it illuminates us, it heals us.
Free for all to join, Intersections explores digital technology and its role within – or external to – our interpersonal and professional relationships, our understandings, our ways of being in the world and our art.
How does each workshop work? At each Intersections workshop, we ask a small group of knowledge guides on the digital revolution to share with us what they think is crucial knowledge we should all know; then we match that knowledge with an artist; the artist then leads people through a creative process in their chosen medium; the process leads to a public art exhibit and presentation of everyone’s creations.
