Content and results
This workshop started the Ambiant Creativity project. It was an opportunity to boot the original mixing of technology, knowledge and know-how brought by the partners, and to refine the protocol of the future common workshops.

Each partner proposed specific sessions on its own tools, and the participants could practice these tools in small groups, with the challenge to achieve a small creative project using most the tools. This workshop was also the first contact of the future art residents with the partners and the project. Finally, 2 informal art evening allowed the participants to present past works, but also share with each other’s the prototype artworks created during the workshops. These presentations, and the workshop as a whole, led to intense and long debates on the core differences between the experimented innovative tools, but also on their possible fundamental complementarities - foreshadowing the future work of the project, particularly within the art residencies.

18 participants.
Students from Master Degrees (Art Science Technology Master of Grenoble INP, France ; Master of the Ecole Européenne Supérieure de l’Image of Angoulême-Poitiers, France); PhD students in sciences and technology; Experimented artists and composers; Participants from the partners.
