projects and networks

Since the early 1990s, banquete_ promotes the development of projects that foster interaction and collaboration among artists, scientists, technologists, and other knowledge producers. Its purpose to structure and consolidate an environment for trans-disciplinary creation and research relating persons, projects, entities and institutions from quite diverse fields. The aim is to experience new hybrid forms of networked knowledge production and transfer, able to dynamize the ASTS (art-science-technology-society) interaction environment.

The project has taken shape in a series of actions and events, that also comprise an environment that serves as a catalyst for research and production projects.
