Our Mission

The critical challenges of the 21st century require mobilization and cross-fertilization among the domains of art, science and technology. Leonardo fosters collaborative explorations both nationally and internationally by facilitating interdisciplinary projects and documenting and disseminating information about interdisciplinary practice.

Vision Statement: Leonardo creates opportunities for the powerful exchange of ideas among practitioners in the arts, sciences and technology. Through publications, initiatives and public forums, Leonardo facilitates cross-disciplinary research in these fields, seeking to catalyze fruitful solutions for the challenges of the 21st century. Among the challenges requiring cross-disciplinary approaches are establishing sustainable environmental practices, spreading global scientific and artistic literacy, creating technological equity and encouraging freedom of thought and imagination. By enhancing communication among scientists, artists and engineers, Leonardo supports experimental projects and interacts with established institutions of art and science to transform their research and educational practices.
