FAST45 Forward Webinar#2 - Envisioning the Artist of the Future

FAST45 Forward Webinar#2 - Envisioning the Artist of the Future

Produced by Film University Babelsberg, KONRAD WOLF

This webinar took place on 28 May, 2022. Watch the recording

Together with a panel of arts professionals and creative thinkers, we explored what a desirable future could look like for artists. We imagined the artist’s involvement in our society in the year 2045. Together, we envisioned the role artists could play as social change-makers, and creative leaders. We discussed the artist's relationship with technology, business, education and transdisciplinary.

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

Watch this unique conversation and get inspired!
