Artsformation is a research project exploring the intersection between arts, society and technology.

We aim to understand, analyse, and promote the ways in which the Arts can reinforce the social, cultural, economic, and political benefits of digital transformation.

With Artsformation we aim to support and be part of the process of making our communities resilient and adaptive in the 4th Industrial Revolution through research, innovation and applied artistic practice.

What is the role of the Arts in digital society?

Artsformation investigates how the Arts intersect with the digital transformation both through impacting it and being impacted in turn.

How do businesses mobilize the Arts to tackle societal problems related to the digital transformation?

Artsformation advances the state of knowledge on how the business sphere mobilises the arts in order to tackle societal challenges arising from digital transformations.

How does civil society mobilize the Arts to catalyse social change, foster civic participation, and strengthen the democratic processes endangered by digital transformations?

Artsformation investigates how the Arts help citizens and civil society to make sense of and overcome the challenges brought about by the digital transformation. We are also looking into how art facilitates and promotes innovation, dissemination, and adoption of new technologies.

How can the Arts inform and shape digital policy-making?

Artsformation explores how the arts can influence the processes of regulation, policy-making, and legislation within the digital transformation.
