Title: Sytems At Play In The Noosphere
Date: 4-7 October 2023
The Center Leo Apostel for Transdisciplinary Studies (CLEA) at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB), in partnership with the Human Energy Project, presents “Systems At Play: In The Noosphere”. The symposium will take place in Brussels from October 4th until 7th, 2023.
‘Systems at Play’ is a transdisciplinary contact zone for artists, scientists and related disciplines to meet at the intersection of systems sciences and play. For this edition, we turn our attention to the Noosphere, the thinking layer enveloping the Earth. Rather than simply coming together to discuss the role of art, science and play in the Noosphere, instead, we shall become a living Noosphere together during the symposium: a collective intelligence, formed by all of us through our shared interactions, experiments and presentations, and play.
How will we do this? We invite diverse applications and proposals in collective intelligence, storytelling, immersive theatre, systems science of the Noosphere, play, ritual, and more, which playfully and critically engage with the idea of Noosphere.
