Human Art in a Post-Human World
11am: Panel discussion
12pm: Networking mixer with delegates from FUTURE ART AND CULTURE FROM ENGLAND
Held at Great Britain House, The Cavern Room
Panel Description: Now that virtual reality can transform your condo into a front row seat at the opera, artificial intelligence can predict your tastes and choices, and the digital processes available to creators advance daily, how are key leaders in the arts and culture sectors responding to our interactive future?
Questions addressed in this panel will ask: What do these challenging developments mean for artists and curators? How will they influence and stay on top of the narrative being driven by rapid technological advances and the needs of big business? What impact will technology have on artists’ relationships with the creative industries?
Chaired by Darren Henley, CEO of Arts Council England and author of The Arts Dividend: Why Investment in Culture Pays, artists, curators and future thinkers will discuss where these seismic digital advances will lead us in the future and why arts and culture should take centre stage in the debate.
