Waag Talks at DDW: STARTS for environmental commons

S+T+ARTS day at Dutch Design Week will showcase and share creative and critical approaches to ecology and the environment as commons. S+T+ARTS is a European Commissioned initiative that supports and yearly recognizes projects in the intersection of Science, Technology and the Arts.

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 art-driven innovation. Several 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. The talks will conclude with an inspiring tour of the Dutch Design Week exhibitions.
