Skellig Foundation Da Vinci Project: Creativity for Sustainability (May 19 – May 22, 2021 Amboise, France)
Pathways for the Future
The Skellig Foundation’s Da Vinci Project was conceived as our way to mark the recent 500th Anniversary of Da Vinci’s death in Amboise on May 2, 1519. To honor this great genius, and commemorate his spirit of curiosity, creativity and invention, we will gather a multi-generational group of artists/scholars from a wide spectrum of disciplines to re-examine the method of Da Vinci as a means to reset Modernity and build pathways to the Planet of the Future.
Workshop participants (and contributing senior academics, industrial professionals, and artists) will be asked just one question: ”What solutions would Leonardo suggest now to the world’s political, business, cultural and religious leaders in the face of the existential challenges arising from earth’s rapidly changing climatic conditions?”
