Sakiya - Art Science Agriculture
Describe the main features of the policy/measure: 

Sakiya is among the several programs initiated during the last four years that linked art and culture to environment. It is a progressive academy for experimental knowledge production and sharing, grafting local agrarian traditions of self-sufficiency with contemporary art and ecological practices. This circular system of knowledge production and sharing integrates agriculture within the framework of an interdisciplinary residency program, where cultural actors, such as farmers and crafts/small industry initiatives, assume a prominent role alongside visiting and local artists and scholars. Sakiya's core programs engage food production, exhibitions, symposia, publications, and education/training workshops, exploring the intersections between art, science, and agriculture in a sustainable and replicable model. Sakiya's vision is: "Liberation through a society whose confidence is rooted in traditional and contemporary ecological practices, whose tolerance echoes nature's diversity, whose generosity springs from collective labor, whose creativity is enriched by the intersections between art, science, and agriculture and whose prosperity is shared beyond boundaries."
