Global Crossings

New creative practices emerging at the intersection of the arts, sciences, and technology are sources of innovation and economic growth. Yet today’s networks of art-science-technology researchers and practitioners are often dominated by individuals and organizations in North America and Western Europe. The Leonardo Global Crossings Project recognizes the contribution of artists and scholars from culturally diverse communities worldwide who work in the art-science-technology field, in the following ways:

1. Publication of the work of international artists and scholars within the pages of our journals

2. Recognition of the work of these individuals through the Leonardo Awards Program. The first Leonardo Global Crossings Award was presented in 2005 to Abdel Ghany Kenawy and Amal Kenawy of Cairo, Egypt. More information about the award and the Kenawys, as well as about the 2005 nominees and the international panel of jurors.

3. Enabling and supporting the participation of international artists and scholars at events and conferences such as the Pacific Rim New Media Summit, pre-conference to ISEA 2006, August 2006.

The Leonardo Global Crossings Project was funded in part by the Ford Foundation and the Rockefeller Foundation.
