Humanities, Arts and Society

About us

The mission of the “Humanities, Arts and Society” Project is to demonstrate the impact of the arts and creativity on society, promote global understanding and collaboration between the disciplines, as well as establish a worldwide movement of artists, researchers, thinkers and project holders.


Humanities, Arts and Society endorsed and is developing the art program line of the Jena Declaration, an effort to promote global sustainability culturally and regionally.

Artists and Projects

Artists from all regions of the world must develop multidisciplinary cooperation with fields of research and the sciences, in the following spheres: The arts as tools in innovation, invention, evolution, and progress; The arts as tools in education, knowledge, and awareness; The arts as tools in practical and sustainable development; The arts as tools in critical thinking, revolution, and resistance; The arts as tools to fight all forms of discrimination.

“The arts do not replace science and are not reducible to the concerns of the sciences, but they participate in the process of developing the creativity, the imagination of new futures, of diversity and of critical thinking.”

Prof. Luiz Oosterbeek
President of CIPSH

Exhibition and events






Produced as part of the Saison Croisée France-Portugal supported by the French Institute, BEING -La Terre comme Événement (BEING – The Earth as an Event) is an interdisciplinary and bilateral cultural event that brings artists, academics, scientists and citizens together from both countries to reflect on the various ecological issues of our time. 

Taking place between Mação (27 May – 25 June 2022) and Paris (17 June – 27 August 2022), BEING -La Terre comme Événement will take place in a variety of formats: two exhibitions, two symposia and a workshop. Through this multidisciplinary approach BEING -La Terre comme Événement intends to provide answers to the questions of WHY and HOW the arts and creativity can bring about ideas and initiatives that benefit a new political and poetic awareness of life.
