“GET INSPIRED – Promising Projects at the Nexus of Art, Technology and Science” was the theme of a showcase of innovative projects based in Linz and Upper Austria staged yesterday by Ars Electronica in cooperation with a regional association of young businesspeople. Join us for a look back at an inspiring evening.
As part of the FutureWorkshop Burak Büyükdemirci recorded his song “Change Yourself Now” in the SoundLab at the Ars Electronica Center. Together with his colleagues and the support of the video production company C.LOUD Pro he also made a music video.
Raffaela Vornicu was looking for a job; Joan Bairam had fled from Syria. Now, both are working at the Ars Electronica Center. What they bring to the job are a healthy measure of curiosity, an extraordinarily high level of commitment and impressive language skills.
A “FutureWorkshop” [Zukunftswerkstatt] was staged for the fifth time at the Ars Electronica Center this week. One of the participants was 20-year-old Hilal Celepci, who was attending this program designed to foster unemployed young people for the second time. Here, she gives us a behind-the-scenes look at FutureWorkshop.
