Organization Objectives and Mission

ChaOS is an NGO founded with the goal of connecting science and art through realization of transdisciplinary cultural and humane projects and to achieve relevant objectives in the field of science, art, culture, charity, sustainable development, protection of cultural heritage, education, tourism, sport and creative industry.

ChaOS creates a creative space, in which interdisciplinary collaborative artistic pieces are created through a synergy of art and science, with the goal of supporting humane and cultural projects.

Our organization gathers multidisciplinary specialists, scientists, artists and managers in informational areas and creative industry, with the goal of realization and leading interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary creative projects according to our goals.

Through these projects our organization will directly and indirectly deal with education of youth and adults, networking, promotion of cross-border cooperation, integration, assistance to endangered ones, persons with health issues and minorities, deal with addictions of technology and other type of addictions, raising cultural and intellectual consciousness and improving quality of different aspects of community.

Our activities are covering all ages, from the youngest ones, school children, unemployed, workers, up to pensioners, with strong focus on endangered and isolated society members.

ChaOS provides information technology and scientific solutions for fulfilling artistic and cultural ideas, as well as artistic approaches for promotion and increasing engagement and interactivity of scientific projects. We gravitate toward strengthening of a dialog and socio-cultural infrastructure of society as well as expanding and raising cultural, artistic and spiritual consciousness of society.

At ChaOS, we use technology for improvement of experience, with clear direction from technology to human, instead vice versa and instead of insisting on technology “per se”. ChaOS is humane and human-centric.

According to Greek creation myths Chaos (Greek: χάος, khaos) is the initial "gap" created by the original separation of heaven and earth. This disorder is beginning of creation, place to search for inspiration.

In modern world Chaos is a gap in creativity, disharmony between science and art, rational and irrational, the world of reason and the world of emotions, the gap we are trying to bridge, to unite by our organization.

Projects

ColLaboFramework
is an open source socio-technological ecosystem for cooperation and dialogue among disciplines, focusing on art and science, for knowledge management and sharing and creation of collective mind and collective intelligence.

it is a short but highly energized, intensive and IT-augmented (by ColLaboFramework system) process of brainstormed working on (often complex and urgent) community issues, through collaboration of (engaged) art and science on finding (through collective creativity and wisdom) emotionally-energized solutions and ideas, and orchestrating them in a multidisciplinary interactive playful performance, that has a potential of changing of behaviors and inspiring further research and artistic creation.

Protopia Futurizer[9]

UCLA[10], Larnaca, Cyprus

ChaOS took part in this inspiring community of  evolutionary learning labs, that understands that new education paradigm is emergent and organic, so it cannot be mechanically “assembled”. It can only be grown by those who already hold some of the keys of the future.

ChaOS members were one of educational innovators who want to create a society based on a collaboration, co-creation, collective wisdom, and compassionate development.

We presented our research on collaboration methodologies and organized a ColLaboArthon through 2 workshops - at the 1st we used CollaboFramework to identify challenges in “IT augmented and collaborative Education Systems”; on 2nd we worked on specific ColLaboArthon game mechanics” and emotionally energized content. Presentation/play in the form of Jam Session Flash Mob at UCLA was an outcome of these multiple steps.

Cooperations

ChaOS is strongly interweaved and a federating member of Knowledge Federation - an international community promotes innovation at a new level through the integration of tools and best practices into a system for knowledge work.

In the area of literature and performance projects ChaOS is cooperating with organization Poezin, whose mission is the establishment of a new poetic scene in Serbia and building bridges with similar organizations in the region and the worldwide.
