Gloria Benedikt, dancer, choreographer, associate for Science & Art, International Institute for Systems Analysis (IIASA), Vienna, Austria, will present findings in the newly published report brochure ‘How Artists Can Support Sustainability Transformations’.
The presentation will be part of this Tuesday’s Morning Sofa, hosted by Huffington Post journalist Amitangshu Acharya and in the sofa, alongside Gloria, Merlijn Twaalfhoven, composer and long-time collaborator with Gloria Benedikt.

“Both science and art have a transformative power, as they are able to depict the world as it is and to imagine it as it could be. IIASA science and arts activities explore how, through a true collaboration between these two spaces, innovative answers can be found for a sustainable transformation of our societies. Through the interaction of science and arts IIASA seeks to explore new solutions to the challenges facing humankind, such as the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

This brochure provides insights into initial results of the science and arts activities at IIASA. It showcases some examples from IIASA and across the world of how the interaction between scientists and artists can foster systemic thinking and, more importantly, systemic action. At the same time, it stresses how public engagement can be facilitated through this collaboration.”

–Professor Dr. Pavel Kabat, Director General and CEO, IIASA
