The Serralves Foundation takes on
as its Mission to stimulate interest and knowledge in contemporary art, in
architecture, in the landscape and in themes critical to society and its
future, namely in the scope of sustainability and science and technology.
Starting from an integrating vision
that promotes innovation processes, Serralves intends to deepen and stimulate
the relationship between art, science and technology.
In this context, the Foundation
presents a new cycle of conversations entitled SERRALVES S+T+ARTS TALKS.
These talks will promote a debate based upon concrete activities, already
carried out or still ongoing under the European Union (EU) Single Digital
Market Initiative (EU) S+T+ARTS - Science, Technology and the Arts.
The first talk will focus on the
Portuguese and European context, discussing the emerging role of the arts in
promoting and implementing the green digital transition. Portuguese cases will
be addressed, in the context of the current EU presidency, and links will be
established to the European Digital Innovation Poles as well as possible
contributions from national organizations to this transformation.
“The emerging role of the arts in
the green digital transition - the case of Portugal: how the collaboration between
entrepreneurs, science, technology and the arts is crucial for contemporary
economies and societies”, will
host the Secretary of State for Digital Transition, André de Aragão Azevedo,
the President of the Board of Directors of the Serralves Foundation, Ana Pinho,
