Artsformation ran a cycle of residencies in Lesvos, Greece, themed ‘Resistance: Decolonising the Digital Transformation’. Participants from the fields of art, culture and creative industries gathered to explore how to challenge systemic inequality in Europe’s digital structures, using only analogue tools. Presented here are extracts of some of the zines they created.
In a moment where digital transformation as a grand societal challenge is generating fierce debate within academia, industry, policy-making, and the economy, Artsformation will develop knowledge, toolsets, and prototypes to leverage the social potential of the Arts in digital transformations.
To celebrate World Quantum Day (WQD), We brought together a network of academics, artists, and scientists from four institutions across the USA, Ireland, Portugal, and Denmark to explore this very question.
