Nelly will be joining WESTART on the 24th of June at 5:30pm CEST for the panel Beyond innovation: exploring alternative paths through education! Nelly will be talking about the principles and processes behind the University of the Underground, joining a panel with Benjamin Gaulon and Dasha Ilina from NĂ˜ School Nevers, a non-profit organisation whose mission is to support and promote emerging art and design research and practices that address the social and environmental impacts of information and communication technologies, in France and beyond.

The presentation and panel discussion will be taking place on Zoom; if you’re interested, registrations are open on the STARTS.eu website.

The weekly WESTART sessions aim at creating a space to exchange and reflect on the role of the arts towards a more inclusive and sustainable future. Within this mission, we are inviting like-minded peers (artists, curators, organisations, etc.) beyond the STARTS community to present their operation and mission to the STARTS community..

On June 10th, we have started by exploring alternative paths through artistic practices. To explore this thematic in a broad sense, we are organising another session on June 24th that will be dedicated to the educational part: WHAT SKILLS AND ALTERNATIVE FORMATS FOR CRITICAL THINKING & MAKING?
