From mid-April to the end of May 2024, the Imagine ArtScience of citizens will take place in and around the cultural museum Atelier34Zero in Jette and near both the Atomium and the residence of the renowned artist Magritte. During this period, Imagine ArtScience becomes the stage for a host of activities, ranging from ArtScience workshops, an ArtScience symposium, debates and a hands-on 'fair'. The focus will be on topics such as the integration of art and science in education. The role of women in science will also be highlighted, tributing Nobel Prize winner Maria Sklodowska Curie.

Imagine ArtScience of citizens is born out of the need and the urgency to bring together artists, scientists, educators, and policymakers to inspire the next generation of innovators. By promoting an ArtScience approach we aim to unlock the full potential of the human mind to create a better world. 

Programme: from questions to a better world

Want to know what questions in art, science and technology could lead to discoveries that will make life better for everyone? How we can harness our imagination to understand our place in the universe and to create (and sustain) a world we all want to live in? How we can foster social cohesion between all β€œpeoples” of this world and work together more effectively to share knowledge and help each other with less barriers? 

Join Imagine ArtScience initiative and delve into these open questions through active participation in conversations, creative activities and experience of ArtScience in action by showcasing existing projects, outcomes and the people behind them. Looking forward to seeing you!
