What We Do

IPLAI was struck for two reasons: to create a space for interdisciplinary research and to connect the university with the outside world of arts, government, policy and culture.

Mission: IPLAI connects interdisciplinary academic research with the public world of art, policy and culture.

Vision: We face unparalleled social, economic, ecological, health, legal and ethical challenges today. IPLAI creates bridges between academic thought and applied public practice to bring about a world rich in both intellectual and material resources — for pleasure, for play, for moral fulfillment, and for the betterment of humanity.
