The Essential Hub Project transforms Ars Electronica, an international creative institution, into an essential hub at the time of crisis to help our society in need.
The worldwide pandemic of COVID-19 has affected our lives and society in many ways. The crisis revealed many issues and questions that exist in the world today. Through this experience, we can grow and rise as a society, finding new creative ideas and solutions that address what is truly necessary for our society.
In the Essential Hub Project, we reimagine our organization for a swift transformation to become an essential hub at the time of crisis to help our society in need. We open our labs, technologies, skilled resources, and the network of creative communities to support essential areas such as healthcare, information, equipment, and education.
The goal of the project is to build the future of Linz together as an essential hub in society.
