The “Actionable Futures” platform will be launched with a two-day event on June 9 and 10, 2022, in Brussels. 

Hosted by the architecture museum CIVA, the program consists of a series of modules organized independently by different collaborators and networks: CIVA, Designscapes, European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST), European Creative Business Network (ECBN), European League of Institutions of the Arts (ELIA), European Network of Living Labs (ENoLL), Hogeschool voor de Kunsten Utrecht (HKU), Trondheim Academy of Fine Art (NTNU), Universität der Künste Berlin (UdK) among many other contributors from all across Europe.

The goal is to bring together a wide range of actors from the fields of art, culture and creativity to discuss our contribution to mission oriented research, the New European Bauhaus and the European Green Deal. 

“Actionable Futures” is an official side event of the Festival of the New European Bauhaus

Please note that most parts of the program are open for remote, online participation but require prior registration
