- Future Makers, the ArtEZ University of the Arts expertise center, will organize a collaborative conversation over the future of living materials:
The ArtEZ Centre of Expertise Future Makers aims an interdisciplinary research approach to improve or develop sustainable value chains in fashion and design. The Future of Living Materials project is an excellent example in which scientists from different disciplines (plant sciences, consumer behaviour, circular business models, cultural studies) collaborate with designers who are exploring the possibilities of biomaterials like seaweed and mycelium. In this round-table setting scientists and designers involved in this project will discuss the challenges to have real impact on the production and use of textile and clothing.
