Since 2012 at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro several projects have been carried out, including scientific communication festivals, artscience performances, a blog and a podcast that reached more than 100,000 people, an award-winning film, academic events, academic papers, and also the publication of books as From Idea to Applause, about the creation of artistic projects inspired by scientific topics.
The Arteciência's founder, Joao Silveira, has accumulated experiences as a fellow at Harvard University (2017 - 2019), at ArtSciLab at the University of Texas (2017 to present) and at Fiocruz Innovation Laboratory (LITEB, 2018 to present). In these innovation environments, and with the collaboration of mentors, researchers and consultants, ArtSci for Education began to be idealized with a focus on the school learning environment.
In 2018 the team of collaborators grew and the project went through another phase of improvement. In 2019 ArtSci is being applied in one of the most prestigious schools in Brazil, where there are more than 500 students experimenting with this methodology and schools coming soon in France.
