Since its inception, GLUON has been raising awareness about global challenges. After all, a thriving society builds on a balanced interaction between the human and exact sciences, between people, their technological achievements, and the natural environment on which they depend. We find interactions between researchers, artists, citizens and students indispensable in a joint search for solutions to the dangers and challenges that affect this system. To this end, GLUON is developing a platform that maximizes collaborations and confrontations between these different actors. Our most important mission is to stimulate partnerships between artists, science and technology. The Art&Research operation of GLUON facilitates and supports artists’ residences in the R&D departments of companies and research institutions on the one hand, and scientists’ residences in artists’ studios on the other. These interactions provide artistic and philosophical results, but also innovative ideas, services and products in non-artistic sectors.
The educational program or “GLUON Education” is the other important pillar of GLUON. The educational activities aimed at (Brussels) young people aged 14 to 18 support them through the arts in the development of digital skills, critical thinking, creativity and entrepreneurship. Our headquarters are located in the center of Brussels (Belgium) and consist of offices and an exhibition space. GLUON realizes its program in collaboration with a growing number of international and national partners.
