S+ART

Create something amazing.

S+ART – the Science, Technology and Art Trust of New Zealand – is a registered charitable trust. It was launched in December 2011 and is based in Palmerston North New Zealand. S+ART provides opportunities to combine science, technology and art to develop local, national and international connections and to build economic and social wealth and diversity through creative endeavour.

Through its programmes and activities, S+ART:

  • Provides opportunities for artists – emerging and established, young and old – to explore different avenues by drawing on scientific and technological disciplines
  • Enables scientists and technicians to work collaboratively with the artistic community to unleash creative thinking in innovative ways
  • Provides additional learning and creative opportunities for young people and the wider community.

Globally, these collaborations give practitioners across disciplines opportunities to work together, think imaginatively and problem solve in creative ways. They also provide opportunities for youth to learn in innovative ways; for the public to debate issues of local, national and international importance; and for the nurturing of a rich and diverse community.

These alliances help to build dynamic communities where talent wants to live.
