An interactive salon of art, innovation, education and conversation, will take place on May 17, 2017 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm at the United Nations Church Center at 777 UN Plaza, in NYC. The salon is a program of A View From The Cloud, a multi-media platform to examine the role of art and technology in sharpening how we see the world, and creating solutions to help achieve humanitarian objectives and the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. Coinciding with Creative Tech Week NYC, this event will bring together innovators from across fields and invited guests to engage with ideas, challenges, questions and interventions.

Presenters for the event that will take place within a setting of art include MIT Neuroscientist Dr. Emile Bruneau; Astronaut, Nicole Stott; humanoid robot Bina 48 and Bruce Duncan Terasem Foundation Managing Director; Paula DiPerna, strategic global environmental and philanthropic policy advisor; United Nations Peacekeeping, Department of Field Support, Eduardo Artigas; Kristin Gutekunst, Executive Producer UN Virtual Reality, New Media & Immersive Content; Directors and educators from various international academic institutions and UN agencies.

The program will feature the artwork of Shahzia Sikander, Richard Mosse, Michael Najjar, Federico Solmi, Claire Jervert, Massimiliano Fusari, Elias Crespin, Jacopo Baboni-Schilingi, and others to be announced.

A View From the Cloud is inspired by the ‘overview effect’—astronauts’ transformative experience of society’s interdependence, as a result of seeing the earth in space. AVFTC connects rare insights with practical solutions and individuals and organizations working to achieve them in diverse fields.

Co-produced by Streaming Museum and World Council of Peoples for the United Nations, A View From The Cloud is a multi-year globally touring project that was introduced at Dag Hammarskjold Plaza - “the Gateway to the United Nations”, in September 2015. Hundreds attended a program that included the film Planetary, art, and presentations by UN Assistant Secretary General on Climate Change Janos Pasztor and Astronaut Ron Garan. Since then, the exhibition and public programs have toured to Kvinesdal, Helsinki, and Miami, with programs planned for international cities.
