To support the production of two artworks and one research 

/Roots & Seeds XXI/aims to promote sustainable habits 
through the use of Art & Science approaches and practices. 
The project wants to encourage audiences to take better care 
of the environment, and more particularly of plants. /Roots

of the European Union, between Ars Electronica,

perspective, and we aim to present it as a model for a more 
sustainable future. Among others, our activities include 
workshops, multidisciplinary garden cartographies, an 
Art-Sci Forum and this Open Call for the production of two
