The Contribution of the Time-based Arts and their Technologies to the New ‘Normal’
Discusión sobre la contribución de las artes del tiempo a una ‘normalidad’ nueva, partiendo de una visión amplia e inclusiva que acepte la creatividad innata latente en todos nosotros, que fomente la creación cooperativa y comunitaria, la igualdad de oportunidades de una normalidad más justa, y la consciencia y el respeto de los entornos naturales y culturales. La mesa cuestiona la manera en que las estéticas y tecnologías de las artes del tiempo se pueden manifestar en los campos de actividad humana, incluyendo los ecosistemas, la economía, los sistemas políticos, los sistemas educativos y otros.
