Contest

Drum, roll… The names of the ITS Contest 2023 finalists are in!

Born to Create

Rebellious, unconventional, revolutionary: that’s what life is. A strange and improbable occurence, when order was created out of disorder in a universe verging on disgregation. As living beings, our innate talent is to perceive order. Everytime we imagine, everytime we take a different, unpredictable path, we are subverting the flow of events: a revolution starts, and a new world is created. So, if life is the ultimate act of rebellion, then creativity is our tool. And we were born to use this tool. We were born to create.
