The IoT Week will bring together artists and IoT experts to explore new creativity alleys. How IoT is impacting and changing the artistic landscape. How can it can lead human creativity towards new frontiers. We will explore it by engaging with various artistic practices and representatives of different sectors of the society. Our aim is to present for the first time at the IoT Week a series of discussions related to Arts engaging people from diverse disciplines.
