An opening night to celebrate the association between artists, scientists and entrepreneurs to create new projects.
For the launch of the “Culture au Futur” Creative Factory, the Pays de la Loire region organized an opening night, designed by CreativeTech and the region’s teams on the theme of this first season “The Incredible Manufacture!”
This event was the occasion for the five trinomials of Culture au Futur workshops to meet at The Quai in Angers: five companies representing the five departments of the Region (Algam, Colart, Mulliez-Flory, Toiles de Mayenne, ZeKat), the winning artists of the competition (Collectif Orum, Elladj Lincy Deloumeaux, Maud Louvrier-Clerc, Pietro Seminelli, Compagnie Mêtis), the laboratories and academics (University of Nantes—LS2N Laboratory, University of Nantes—CEISAM Laboratory, Sébastien Lahaye Polytech Angers-Atelier NaN, University of Le Mans, Polytech Angers). During this launch, the participants shared their desires for building together the future and for strengthening the links between entrepreneurs, artists and researchers.
Some shows and creations gave rhythm to that night: the excerpts from shows by Ulik Robotic and Adrien M & Claire B, a performance by Ezra and Alex Mechafel who created a visual and sound work by collecting and capturing objects live, and by an interactive work the “Phonolofium” designed by Grégory Laserre and Anaïs met den Ancxt.
The evening was an opportunity to show how links between art, science and business lead to new, concrete and projects. Looking forward to the event in June 2019!
