The Centre for Innovative Media was founded at the Academy of Applied Arts of University of Rijeka in 2017, with the goal of connecting new media art, science and technology, founded on ethics, ecology and self-sustainable systems.
CIM collaborates with other faculties from the University of Rijeka, particularly those involved in exploration of new scientific research, and with other universities, institutes and other cultural institutions, in order to create interdisciplinary and new media projects.
CIM works on a national and international level, congregating a number of well-respected artists, scientists and theoreticians with the goal of research and presentation of newest developments in contemporary art, science and technology.
The goals of the Centre are: promotion of art as an important third party and spiritus movens of change in all segments of society, education on applying newest technologies in art and enticing social dialogue on the possibilities of more functional, creative, diverse and available learning. These goals will be organized through the following activities aimed at the wider audience: workshops, lectures, exhibitions, residential programs.
The CIM programme offers an innovative approach in applied arts, 3D printing, micros canners, virtual reality (VR) and augmentative reality (AR), interactive video, computer graphics and animation and multiple aspects of creative endeavours such as application of contemporary music and sound in a media environment (film, video, Internet).
