Researchers from academia and knowledge hubs in Europe and Internationally will discuss topicalaffairs and collaborate with early career researchers to facilitate knowledge exchange and cross-border collaboration in order to develop an understanding around the research topic of criticalcommunity care and creative technologies.

The round table will be open to the ISEA2023participants and the public. Toolkit of Care is an interdisciplinary group of creative practitioners,academics, researchers and arts/crafts organisations that specialise in creative technologies havecome together to form a “critical network of care.”

TOOLKIT OF CARE is an international Action led by an interdisciplinary group of creativepractitioners, academics, researchers and arts organisations that specialise in creative technologiesand that have considerable experience in the production and dissemination of this kind ofknowledge across Europe and internationally, who have come together to form a “critical networkof care”. The network will collaborate to share their collective expertise and technical knowledgeemployed in creative ways to develop knowledge and methodologies of care. The main aim is toproduce a well formulated and integrated TOOLKIT OF CARE comprising articles, prototypes,audiovisual documentation, technical manuals, theoretical analysis, prototypes, and data. It will actas a model of how to successfully share knowledge and expertise across different geographicalregions and social groups.

*COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology) is a funding agency for research andinnovation networks. Our Actions help connect research initiatives across Europe and enablescientists to grow their ideas by sharing them with their peers. This boosts their research, careerand innovation.
