Art and climate change
After a Call for Patrons organized by Artehazia, a third project starts with a trans-border group
composed between others by the Surfrider Foundation. The New Patrons want to make visible the effects of the climate change
in the Txingudi Bay. The project is supported by Fondation de France and Carasso Foundation. More information available in the next months. [Image: artistic project by Christine Wertheim and Margaret Wertheim about the disappearance of the Barrier Reef in Australia]
Stimulating, vitalizing, inspiring...
by the WZB
(only availble in Spanish) analyzes the results of 76 improbable connections
and compares them with artistic interventions carried out in German companies. The results confirm previous findings: both project managers and workers find the connections stimulating, vitalizing, inspiring
, but also useful, surprising and fun
. Both emphasize that they bring new ways of seeing things
, and, at a personal level, fresh perspectives
. 100% of the workers that have participated in creative pills in Irun would recommend others to participate
in them; and 90.5% of project managers
would also recommend so (9.5% answered "maybe"). [Image: creative pill Maushaus + Garbi]
