DaVinci Project

Skellig Foundation Da Vinci Project: Creativity for Sustainability (Oct 7-8 2022 Amboise, France)   

Pathways for the Future

The Skellig Foundation’s Da Vinci Project was conceived as our way to mark the 500th Anniversary of Da Vinci’s death in Amboise on May 2, 1519.   To honour this great genius, and commemorate his spirit of curiosity, creativity and invention, we wish to search for ideas from young people with different backgrounds and disciplines that will, hopefully, trigger some totally novel discussions, and enable the development of a step change by the power of “Meitheal” (Gaelic word associated with a collective effort). By asking more senior people from different backgrounds to also contribute ideas and commentary, we aspire to highlight new ideas from a multi-generational group of artists/scholars that re-examine the method of Da Vinci as a means to reset Modernity and build pathways to the Planet of the Future.

Our competition entrants, as well as senior academics, industrial professionals, artists and others who will be asked to send a “Message in a Bottle” to Amboise, 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?”

To learn about our contest aimed at uncovering “brilliant solution” ideas from young people, please return here for further information soon.

The Skellig Foundation welcomes help and support from companies, charities and individuals. Assistance can be via financial donations, or volunteering time and energy to make this and future projects both enlightening and successful.

The Foundation, and all the Workshop Team, give a very warm “THANK-YOU” to everyone who has already contributed money, time, and advice to the Leonardo Da Vinci project!!
