Idealist Institute

Living lab
Since 2017

The Idealist Institute is an open organisation, that direct an “Idealist” way of considering art, design and life in a society in constant mutation. Joined by a desire to bring about solutions to societal challenges, we shape necessary and collective dreams for the environmental and people’s social well being. We are citizens, institutions and companies, that collaborate across artistic, design and organisational borders, to make ideal, inclusive futures happen, within our own ever evolving fields and local contexts.

OPEN: Any creation has to be transformable.
COURAGEOUS: Question everything and accept risk taking, to change the status quo.
IMMERSIVE: Be immersed in the context, to shape necessary and collective dreams.
ITERATIVE: Recognise and raise the value of the existent and reactivate its value.
UNDERSTANDABLE: Make the complex accessible and understandable by anyone.
CAREFUL: Take the necessary time for reflection, to find the common good.
JUST: Collaborate with, and trust transversal knowledges, for an accurate and fair output.
SHAREABLE: Idealism will be shared and transmitted to generate transformative practices.
