Artists have always found inspiration in the natural world, drawing from its intricate patterns, breathtaking landscapes, and delicate ecosystems. The allure of nature lies in its ability to stir our emotions and remind us of the interdependence of all living creatures, urging us to preserve and safeguard our environment.

Today, we stand witness to a global awakening, as the importance of sustainability takes center stage in our collective consciousness. The urgency to address climate change, protect biodiversity, and adopt eco-friendly practices has never been more evident. Artists possess a unique power to influence and shape societal values. Delegates can create works that not only inspire and engage but also raise awareness and foster a deeper connection with the natural world.

The intersection of art, design, and sustainability could be seen as a catalyst for showcasing the profound influence that nature has on the creative process. There is an inherent beauty in the world around us, and it is through this lens that we seek to explore the boundless possibilities for sustainable art in various domains, including architecture, interior design, graphic design, fashion, photography, advertising, painting, and beyond.

The Istituto Marangoni in Dubai is proud to announce the inaugural international conference on "Sustainable Creative Art: Inspiration from Nature," (SCIN) scheduled to take place in Dubai from the 22th to the 24th of April 2025. As a renowned institution, Istituto Marangoni has played a pivotal role in shaping the artistic landscape and nurturing the talents of numerous celebrated artists.

Throughout this conference, we will delve into the innovative approaches employed by artists and creative industries as they embrace sustainability and incorporate nature-inspired elements into their work. Delegates will have the opportunity to explore how architecture can seamlessly blend with the environment, resulting in structures that harmonize with their surroundings while minimizing their ecological footprint. The transformative power of interior design will also be showcased, as spaces are infused with natural elements that promote well-being and sustainability.

The conference will highlight the harmonious coexistence of sustainability and aesthetics within the fields of graphic design and fashion, both of which have a profound impact on our daily lives. Attendees will witness how the fashion industry is leading the way in adopting sustainable practices, from utilizing ethically sourced materials to implementing circular fashion models. Furthermore, photography, painting, and oil drawings will capture the essence of nature's beauty, immortalizing it on canvas and film. Decorative murals will breathe life into urban spaces, infusing them with vibrant colors and motifs inspired by the natural world.

The Sustainable Creative Art conference promises to be an enriching and enlightening event, bringing academics, pioneers, artists, industry professionals, and enthusiasts to explore the limitless possibilities of sustainable art. We invite you to join us in Dubai as we celebrate the beauty of nature and its profound influence on the creative process. By bringing diverse voices and perspectives, the conference will cultivate a global network of artists and scholars dedicated to exploring the potential of sustainable art. It is through this collaboration that we can collectively address the challenges and seize the opportunities presented by the intersection of art, sustainability, and nature.

Furthermore, it is important to note that this conference extends beyond the sessions held at the Istituto Marangoni. It transcends borders and embraces the international community of artists and scholars. We are honored to welcome esteemed representatives from universities worldwide, as they bring their valuable insights and expertise to the event. In addition, renowned fashion designers, well-known.

About ASTI

Advances in Science, Technology & Innovation (ASTI) is a series of peer-reviewed books based on important emerging research that redefines the current disciplinary boundaries in science, technology and innovation (STI) in order to develop integrated concepts for sustainable development. It not only discusses the progress made towards securing more resources, allocating smarter solutions, and rebalancing the relationship between nature and people, but also provides in-depth insights from comprehensive research that addresses the 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs) as set out by the UN for 2030.

The series draws on the best research papers from various IEREK and other international conferences to promote the creation and development of viable solutions for a sustainable future and a positive societal transformation with the help of integrated and innovative science-based approaches. Including interdisciplinary contributions, it presents innovative approaches and highlights how they can best support both economic and sustainable development, through better use of data, more effective institutions, and global, local and individual action, for the welfare of all societies. The series particularly features conceptual and empirical contributions from various interrelated fields of science, technology and innovation, with an emphasis on digital transformation, that focus on providing practical solutions to ensure food, water and energy security to achieve the SDGs. It also presents new case studies offering concrete examples of how to resolve sustainable urbanization and environmental issues in different regions of the world. Read More.

The ASTI series is fully indexed in Scopus and any chapter/ paper published as part of this series will be seen on the Scopus database. Some titles have been successfully indexed or submitted for indexation in Web of Science (ISI).
