Understanding ARTS based RESEARCH Symposium + Exhibition
Presented by the UCLA Art Sci center in collaboration with the University of Applied Arts Vienna (Universität für Angewandte Kunst Wien, or Die Angewandte).
The two-day symposium and exhibition on arts based research aims to envision a future in which arts and design are understood to be central to the success of every complex problem. Focus in the program will be to highlight the importance of art research and education, particularly in times of social unrest and climate change. It is through the arts that the scope of human experience around creativity, innovation, empathy, culture, and knowledge is learned, expressed, and distributed, both for the common good and the development of the individual. By highlighting collaborative research between artists, humanists, scientists and scholars at large, the symposium will attempt to demonstrate the important role of art research in academia and beyond.
