altan Laboratories initiates, mediates and shares innovative research and development at the intersection of art, design and technological culture. Baltan sees the laboratory as a way of working. It is both a network and a methodology for creating and sharing new concepts, tools and knowledge. Baltan is a flexible, collaborative platform for future thinking that places art and design research at the core of its activities.
Baltan achieves this through:
• the development of research projects and public activities for local and international creative practitioners to interact and innovate through the meeting of art, design and technological culture;
• strategic collaborations with local, national and international organisations, institutes, schools and companies that promote new ways of working and create opportunities for talent development and creative innovation;
• the open dissemination and discussion of developed art, technologies and knowledge;
• the investigation, further development and promotion of the lab concept through practice.
