Leonardo/the International Society for Arts, Sciences and Technology (Leonardo/ISAST) is a global enterprise think-tank creating inroads to imagine a better world, regenerate hope for humanity and achieve breakthrough solutions to our most complex problems.
Fearlessly pioneering since 1968, Leonardo serves a global network of scholars, artists, scientists and researchers by publishing the world’s leading academic publications with MIT Press, incubating transdisciplinary community nodes through our international LASER Salons, supporting critical thinking and research through art-sci residencies, designing impactful conventions across time zones and disciplines, and supporting educational innovation through our partnership with the #1 public research institution, Arizona State University (ASU).
Through the ASU-Leonardo platform, we are creating agile educational opportunities to respond to - and drive - industry, policy and global learning. Our educational program supports innovative microlearning modules across multiple [formats/modalities], mentorship, early publishing entryways, non-linear experimental publishing, full-cycle ideation and creative presenting opportunities.
Our Commitment to Art-Sci Education:
Leonardo is where ideas don’t take sides. We advance this belief by forging pathways for access through multilingual publishing, digital platforms and virtual participation, breaking through barriers and limitations due to travel, language and/or state policy. We stand by the values we share with ASU: excellence, global engagement, purposeful & impactful research, social embeddedness, student success, sustainability, valuing entrepreneurship & innovation.
Designing the future of Arts Publishing with The Wild State - Kunstuniversität Campus at Ars Electronica : The next generation of art-sci-tech practitioners around the globe will converge at THE WILD STATE, supported by the Ars Electronica platform and The University of Art and Design Linz, to influence the future of arts research and publishing. As Leonardo/ISAST begins to design for the future of experimental publishing, we must include a multi-generational, trans-technical, multilingual and transnational approach. Partnering with THE WILD STATE and the University of Art and Design Linz is essential to deploying educational-to-professional models of practice.
