Sigma Orionis is proud to coordinate the “ICT & Art Connect initiative”, developing its activities, over the June 2013 – May 2014 period, through the FP7 EU-funded support action FET-ART (in the FET area: Future Emerging Technologies).
The initiative, stemming from the successful “ICT and Art Connect” event organized by the European Commission in 2012, aims at exploring boundaries between ICT and Art, engaging representatives of the two fields in networking activities and collaborative work.
FET-ART will offer a “matchmaking” service through an online community, and recurring open calls for residencies, available to pairings willing to contribute with a pilot project to the initiative particularly on the themes “Co-creation”, and “ICT engagement through Art”. Moreover, many events will be held all over Europe to provide opportunities to ICT specialists and artists to get together and interact.
