STARTS is an initiative of the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. Re-FREAM is a collaborative research project where selected artists and designers team up with a community of scientists to rethink the manufacturing process of the fashion industry. Over a nine-month period, these hybrid teams will embark on a co-research and co-creation journey guided by a specific Art/Tech collaboration methodology.
STARTS Programme Ι re-fream.eu
Selected artists and technologists commit during a nine-month period (part face-to-face in the hubs, and part online) to undergo a co-research and co-creation process together by using the Re-FREAM Art/Tech Collaboration Methodology on specific technology challenges. Training and co-design with environmental and manufacturing experts will thus expand the vision of the hubs beyond prototype and small-scale manufacturing towards a holistic perspective for a sustainable future.
