Principale caractéristique de la mesure:

The aim of The Art of Impact was to have artists, designers, mediators, cultural institutions and clients from inside and outside the cultural sector create plans that explore and strengthen the relationship between the arts and other social fields, and make this relationship more visible.

Résultats attendus de la mise en œuvre de la mesure:

The Art of Impact was a programme which ended in 2016. The results are difficult to describe as the arts do not always conform to cognitive results. The majority of the projects are still in development, therefore it is not possible to describe the achieved impact.[1] The programme achieved a better establishment of social design in domains outside the cultural sector. Artists are increasingly asked to engage in social issues.
