Artivism: Exploring the Harmonic Nexus: Uniting Science, Music, and Art for Societal Transformation, with Felipe Vegus

Let’s embark on a transformative journey intertwining science, music, and art. Delve into the historical link between mathematics and music, dating back to the Pythagoreans, setting the stage for a harmonic worldview. Experience the emotive power of music as a catalyst for social change and exploration of harmonious paradigms. Picture a metaphorical bridge spanning disciplines, unifying physics, biology, and society under the influence of music.

Witness the role of “artivism” in driving social transformation through visual art, music, and poetry. Explore the collaborative synergy between creativity and science, unveiling innovative solutions. Reflect on your creative potential and envision a harmonious response to contemporary challenges. Engage in open dialogue, sharing thoughts on the intersection of science, music, and art. Conclude with a summary, reinforcing the attainability of a harmonious worldview through creativity and knowledge.

Felipe Vega, Statement

“I’m a researcher, educator, and artist with a passion for blending science, art, and community engagement. From an early start as an assistant professor for international ecology programs in Corcovado, Costa Rica, I’ve evolved over 16 years to embrace diverse fields—Science, Math, Arts, Engineering, and the English language.

During an internship at the National Psychiatric Hospital, I developed workshops in garden and logic therapy, and was trained in Math and Science Gifted Programs. For over six years, I’ve led a Harmonic Science platform at TEC University, exploring music through nature and everyday knowledge.

Currently, I conduct music therapy workshops at Aldeas SOS’ Green Classroom and Casa de Luz programs, focusing on abandoned youth. Through the power of music, these workshops provide inspiration and healing, aligning with my belief in the harmony of science, art, and community.”
