The Resonances Festival brings together scientists, artists and policy makers to discuss matters of concern from various points of view, not only to the JRC and the European Commission but also more widely to society. It is the flagship programme of the Joint Research Centre's SciArt project, held every two years at the JRC in Ispra (Italy).
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy. The SciArt project intends to integrate art in the JRC's multidisciplinary work on an equal footing.
The theme of the third edition of Resonances Festival is Big Data and identity, developed into the concept of Datami. Big Data have erupted in our daily lives and we want to join the discussion on how to turn Big Data into culture, not leaving it only in the hands of technicians, trolls and corporations. We want to become hackers of our own future. We think it is time we make them ours, these Big Data, this digital transformation, in a vast collective effort open to all.
