The first collaborative immersive workshop between UNICEF’s Office of Innovation and Arts Letters & Numbers was held at the Arts Letters & Numbers Mill from Dec 7th- Dec 10th. The workshop brought together over 30 people to explore the challenges and opportunities within the broad topic of ‘Information Poverty.’ This initial workshop gathered people from a wide spectrum of disciplines including: artists, architects, policy-makers, musicians, scientists, writers, craftspeople, composers, economists, mimes, engineers, actors, dancers, mathematicians, chefs, scholars, historians, theater directors (and more) to open up questions and expand our understanding of what ‘Information Poverty’ means and how to develop approaches to access tools of communication and information to strategically improve the lives of children worldwide. It was a remarkable experience of shared stories, ideas, visions, and works.
It is a distinct honor and pleasure to be collaborating with UNICEF on projects that resonate so deeply with the mission of Arts Letters & Numbers.
