The European social art project has three intertwined goals: Rediscovering the role of the artist in our society, revealing the opportunities of art meeting entrepreneurship while fostering creative solutions for the issue of water pollution. Art engages in questioning and rethinking existing systems. Artists are change agents with the ability to affect society for the better. Expanding this process through co-creation and entrepreneurship, the project will explore new business models for artists and motivate innovative solutions for ecological and social change. The project brings together artists, art historians and public educators, innovative creative hubs, scientists, entrepreneurs and experts of entrepreneurial design. The fundamental collaborative exchange creates valuable spill-over effects for everyone involved.After Kick-off, the Open Call invites artists to submit their artistic perspectives online, based on the scientific introduction „Waste in the Seas“. A jury selects the Artists in Residence. All submissions will be shown at the Grand Opening. Five Stations will bring the exhibition with a co-creation workshop to associated partners. During the Artist Residencies, the artists produce their art works, engage with the public in 3 Actions and are matched with Entrepreneurs to explore business models. All activities lead to the Final Festival. There, the art works and entrepreneurial solution concepts will be presented and discussed to reflect the artist’s role in innovation and new business models.All activities are covered in a Guidebook and on an Online Platform that is open for further contributions and discussions. The project endeavours to extend the capacities of artists and to engage profoundly with the audience. The aim is to inform, inspire and activate artists and European citizens for creative, societal participation through art as a catalyser for social innovation, and entrepreneurship as a tool to enable its sustainability.
