Art is a powerful engine
for responsible innovations
In4Art combines the power of ‘the third source of experimentation’ – artistic experimentation – with rigorous research and a practical perspective on the need to create lasting value.
As an innovation platform, In4Art is interested in making connections between science, technology and the arts. The organisation’s work focuses on creating space for experiments that enable responsible innovations to be envisioned and brought into being. This led to the development of the Art-Driven Innovation method.
Where artists experiment,
futures are built.
In4Art searches for overlooked perspectives and unexpected solutions that can change the world for good; it collects them, partners in their further development, and shares their transformative potential.
At In4Art, we set out to rethink the ideas of societal and economical structures or institutions by placing circularity, biodiversity restoration and inclusivity at the core of our efforts.
The moment has come to harvest the potential of the arts in our society and economy. We need new mindsets to transform our current economy and new stories to realize responsible innovations which will have a positive impact and contribute to achieving to the Sustainable Development Goals.
The In4Art team is driven by the need to increase the impact of art in society and the regenerative economy by bringing about systematic change that contributes to the circular economy and next-generation internet. Our team is a distinguished mix of researchers, artists, business developers, creative coders and storytellers. Our team constantly searches for overlooked perspectives and unexpected solutions that can change the world for good; it collects them, partners in their further development, and shares their transformative potential.
