Tech Open Air 2017
The Solar Panel Collection aligns science and art, creating a platform where renewable energy meets artistic creativity. We invite a selection of artists and designers to employ solar panels as an artistic medium. The resulting bespoke artworks will be exhibited in Berlin and subsequently sold online in a bene t auction, with proceeds going to Little Sun’s “Solar Kids School Program”, a humanitarian project that provides clear, safe and sustainable light to circa 2,000 school children and their teachers in Rwanda. These kids live beyond the energy grid and rely on dangerous, polluting and expensive kerosene or candles for their lighting. The Solar Panel Collection aims to raise awareness for renewable energy, now set to become the primary form of energy in the not-too-distant future. The project would like to highlight the potential where art, technology and nature can co-exist.
Tech Open Air is Europe’s leading interdisciplinary technology festival. At TOA our mission is to connect, grow and inspire the human spirit through interdisciplinary knowledge exchange and collaboration.
