FAST Forward Webinar #2

Envisioning the Artist of the Future

When: 18 May, 2022

Time: 16:00-18:00 CEST

Together with a panel of arts professionals and creative thinkers, we explore what a desirable future could look like for artists. We imagine the artist’s involvement in our society in the year 2045. Together, let us envision the role artists could play as social change-makers, and creative leaders. Let's discuss the artist's relationship with technology, business, education and transdisciplinarity.

Beaming online audiences onto a big screen, to face an in-person audience live in a movie theatre – will provide the perfect hybrid setting for this futures-thinking dialogue.

Join this unique conversation and experience opportunities to interact and connect with colleagues and panellist alike.
