SYNAPSE Podcast cu Ilinca & Chris | Ep 5 | Copenhaga – Efervescenta Viata Artistica

Synapse Your Future Podcast | Episode 5

The cultural scene of Copenhagen is vibrant, informative, and immersive. The interconnectivity between sciences, arts, and the city’s history play significant roles in providing memorable exhibitions and a rich, diverse architectural landscape.

Museums such as the Glyptotek and the Copenhagen Museum, offer glimpses into the past that built Denmark. The Glyptotekt is hosting extensive collections, from ancient Egyptian statues to a floor dedicated to the evolution of Danish art, all founded by Carl Jacobsen, a patron of local and exotic art, and the founder of Carlsberg.

This cultural enrichment is highlighted by the stunning architecture as well. Areas such as the town hall center can be seen with intricate, historic buildings cohabiting alongside large glass-paned structures, showcasing a brilliant mix between the traditions and Denmark’s progressive nature.

Within this podcast, Chris and Ilinca will be discussing cultural movements, specifically museum exhibitions and the architectural interconnectivity between the city’s past, present, and future.

About the Authors

Ilinca Sandu | Synapse Podcast

Ilinca Sandu

Ilinca is the founder of the first student-run newspaper in her school. Her passion for literature, culture and media prompted her to bring up the idea to her school director, resulting in the creation of an innovative and thought-provoking club. She is fascinated by the relationship between the creative and the analytical, and discovering the intersectionality between her various areas of interest, such as poetry and business. As society becomes consumed with the ideas of consumerism and efficiency, Ilinca believes that humanity and compassion are the keys to creating powerful organisations that lead to positive social change.

Chris Sas

Chris’s contribution to founding the first student-run magazine of International School of Bucharest alongside Ilinca created a warm environment between students, teachers and parents. This “synapse” between the academic social sphere and current events, culture and creativity allowed for several initiatives such as the ‘Swimathon’ fundraiser – aimed to raise money for children with autism. His fascination with social and economic innovation and how it affects culture, politics and global affairs led to the desire to find outlets on how to inform and educate using mediums such as art. Innovation always manifests itself in culture. Chris is interested in exploring this phenomenon.

We are caught in today’s routine and we often forget tomorrow’s challenges. Is the rise of the superstorms, floods, and devastating fires a powerful enough alarm bell? What if climate change pulls us into this vortex, in a spiraling chaos towards our end? Can we save tomorrow?
