The Next Renaissance platform aims to develop a global transdisciplinary movement that encourages scientific, technological, cultural and artistic convergence towards a paradigm shift in the ways we think, plan and act. Advocating for creative and cultural sectors to lead the imagination and implementation of solutions to pressing global challenges, the platform seeks to build communities at the nexus of culture and creativity that will support the need for a “great rethinking” of the ethics, values and priorities of our time. Through mapping ongoing “next renaissance” efforts, promoting interdisciplinary education programs and hosting exhibitions, the platform’s goal is to engage a wide range of audiences with the possibilities and pitfalls presented by “The Next Renaissance,” In 2024, the platform will launch an action plan towards a more sustainable, enriched future transformed by creativity and collaboration, and cultural rebirth and renewal.
