CUNA is an educational platform located in Mexico City. Our curriculum explores the interconnections between art, science and technology. Our educational model adapts to local and global needs and problems.
We create a platform for playful experimentation and serious engagement with the constant flux, and redefinition of society and humanity.
Our educators are active practitioners working with these topics, from diverse backgrounds that include Activists, Artists, Philosophers, Researchers, Scientists, and Technologists.
Who is CUNA for?
We are not looking for a specific checklist of academic qualifications and we do not require previous experience in the thematic areas of our courses.
We are open-minded towards who may come through our doors. Participants may come from science, computer, art, creative design, philosophy, or something else! What is important to us is that participants show curiosity and willingness to expose themselves to new and potentially completely unfamiliar thinking.
We believe that a critical understanding of how society and humanity are changing through technology and science is a public right.
We exist to spread these ideas and create communities of informed thought, and critical thinking, citizens. We believe that creative exploration of these ideas through artistic practice allows us to examine problems from new angles, deepen understanding, and expose new possibilities. If this sounds exciting, then CUNA is for you!
Cuna is an international educational platform of Art, Science and Technology located in Mexico City, which exposes Mexicans with cutting-edge thinking and technologies, connects experts with civic society and proposes a collaborative-horizontal educational model that caters to local and global needs and issues quickly. We are aimed at the curious and determined minds, who can come from any background.
We want CUNA to cross cultural and economic boundaries; that is, expand its reach to various sites in Latin America and penetrate to many socio-economic levels in a span of 3 years. We intend to consolidate a relevant intellectual community which is involved with local and global causes, so that together we can improve and re-design reality.
CUNA´s culture is defined by valuing empathy and cross-cultural and interdisciplinary collaboration. We seek to be coolhunters in terms of our lines of exploration (art, science and technology), sharing our findings as a family. It is important to our meet goals, but always have fun in the process. For CUNA, dialogue, truth and good are the basis of everything: both between the team, with collaborators and with our users.
