RIXC launches new project: NORTH – Creative Network

RIXC launches new project “NORTH – Creative Network” with the support of EEA and Norwegian Financial Mechanisms.

RIXC’s new initiative “NORTH – Creative Network” is a response to the current unstable situation which requires constant and rapid changes in culture and art sector and finding new, innovate solutions for more sustainable future. Recently new media artists have developed and expanded their field of interests far beyond the so-called “new media” borders. They are engaged in sustainability issues, looking at them from different perspectives – social, cultural, environmental and technological. Project partner countries – Norway and Iceland – are leaders in research and production of renewable energy. The artists in this project will be invited to collaborate with scientists in order to jointly create a “renewable future vision” – discussing the future of the Northern water, glaciers melting effects, biological potential for energy production in the future and communication technologies, open source approach and bio-art etc.
