The valorisation of the European Erasmus+ project CO-ARTFor two years now, antic has been working on the subject of digital uses in the cultural sector, notably through the European project CO-ART. In partnership with 5 European associations (from Cyprus, Latvia, Poland, Greece and Spain), antic has developed an e-learning platform on which there are 24 online Escape Rooms for young artists to develop their entrepreneurial and digital skills in a fun and interactive way. During this event on 22 March, several participants of the CO-ART project will be present to give feedback on this two-year experimentation and the Escape Rooms created will be made available for testing (see the website).
The territory solicited and listened to for programmingDuring the last two years of working closely with the cultural and creative sector of the territory on the CO-ART project, the themes of NFT and Artificial Intelligence have come up regularly. After having been formally identified during a workshop to survey the needs of these actors last December, the antic decided to take advantage of this closing event of the CO-ART project to propose to this sector an OFF formula of the Rencontres Numériques Pays Basque dedicated to the artistic and cultural sector in order to also address these subjects. As the first structure to receive the Responsible Digital label in the Basque Country, serving a territory where culture is an essential part of the identity and dynamism, it seemed obvious to devote part of this event to the question of “Can the uses of NFT and AI be chosen and deployed in a responsible manner?”
On the programme for Wednesday 22 March2pm: Fragments exhibition by Romain Lalire in augmented reality & test of the CO-ART online Escape Rooms 6pm: Feedback on the CO-ART project, fun learning tools for young artists 18h15: Round table “Can the uses of NFT and AI be chosen and deployed in a responsible way?
- Romain Lalire, Visual artist: He subtly mixes art and technology and creates images full of magic. Performances, installations, photographs and videos… whatever the form, the common denominator is poetry… Augmented reality, generative software, real-time programs, mapping, sensory sensors… His work now tends to give meaning to all this profusion and materializes it in the form of photographic exhibitions and interactive installations.
- Cyril Leclerc, Les Œuvres Vives : With a degree in Art History and Cultural Engineering, he works with cultural actors and entrepreneurs and assists them in the implementation of their strategy. To do this, he combines and uses different tools (project management, environmental and CSR approaches, communication, marketing, design thinking, etc.) to enrich their project and give it more meaning.
- Franck Dupont, NFT Biarritz : A computer engineer, he helps entrepreneurs understand Web3 and co-founded OpenGem, which evaluates the level of ownership offered by NFTs. In 2022, he organised the 1st edition of the NFT Biarritz trade show.
- Virginie Baro, gallery owner www.virginiebaro.com : Virginie Baro selects and sells works of art via the e-Store virginiebaro.com and organises ephemeral exhibitions and sales. She also accompanies the careers of visual artists and cultural projects. She is particularly attached to the quality of the plastic research and the authenticity of the artistic approach associated with a mastery of the medium.
