This year, the symposium revolves around the theme "Exploring ArtScience Across Borders," which builds upon the idea that creative efforts rely on the continuous interaction between various forms of expression and research. This encompasses everything from art to science, culture to technology, and design to innovation. The ultimate goal is to enrich human experience, society, and education through lifelong learning.

To make this event as engaging as possible, the organizing team has curated an inspiring program. Anticipate creative workshops focusing on finding solutions to contemporary issues and engaging in interdisciplinary dialogues. Additionally, prominent figures in ArtScience will share their expertise during various forums, where the latest innovations will also be discussed. And don't forget to indulge in the delightful taste of chocolate and beer that will accompany it all.

During the symposium, new approaches will be highlighted on how collective knowledge and imagination can be utilized to address global challenges. This will entail exploring questions within the domains of curiosity, creativity, and community. These open-ended questions will be answered through the active participation of the audience, comprising artists, scientists, engineers, policymakers, entrepreneurs, educators, youth, and the elderly. Only through this collaborative effort can new ideas and partnerships emerge to promote innovation and solutions in the ArtScience approach.
