Creating Artistic Interventions within Enterprises
The workshop was split into two distinctive parts: first one was devoted to a training seminar held by Viviana Carlet (Lago Film Fest) and Anna Quinz (Franz ) and introduced by professor Fabrizio Panozzo, whose objective was to highlight the pros of including art as a means for stimulating innovations within organizations and the possible cons and how to properly and effectively handle them.
The response from the attendees was very positive, with lots of questions being asked either from an artistic perspective or from an entrepreneurial one. A few new entries were present and those who had the opportunity to be part of the previous meetings were finalizing projects and investigating further opportunities with new partners. It's safe to say that when people do not want to leave is a solid evidence of a relationship being generated and that's exactly what happened.
We stayed overtime till the actual building needed to be closed for the night. Ideas were morphing into viable, implementable projects. Next steps will be towards the end of September when companies will decide the projects they want to continue with, in the meanwhile the SMATH team will keep offering its "bridge-building" and mediation to all participants.
