Waag Talks at DDW: S+T+ARTS for environmental commons
During S+T+ARTS day at Dutch Design Week, STARTS Prize nominees and honorary mentioned artists will take the stage and engage with citizens, emerging designers and the industry around their work. We invite you to join our platform to share ideas and inspiration and go into discussion with the artists on the environmental commons.
Although novel technological, ecological and business solutions are entering the markets, artists are the ones that are making them inclusive and sustainable for society. The commons are the cultural and natural resources accessible to all members of society, including a habitable earth. We will showcase what art-driven innovation can do.
