A series of 8 online ‘events’ are planned to take place between Jan-April 2021. The series of events will be centrally marketed and branded.
Over the next few months we will be hosting a webinar series featuring eight online ‘events’ on a diverse range of topics relevant for Arts and Humanities professionals, students, educators as well as those providing professional development support.
- the potential for cross-fertilisation within the Cultural and Creative sector; Strategies to tackle impact of the Covid-crisis on events and festivals;
- the role of creative hubs for professional development;
- Mentoring: how to get the most out of the experience;
- the role of digital technologies and their potential as an emancipatory force;
- the post-Covid landscape for entrepreneurship within Arts and Humanities;
- and how to best support the creative graduate in the work place.
The webinars feature presentations, round table discussions and audience Q&A.
We look forward to welcoming you and hearing what you have to say.
Feb. 9th, 2021 | 11am – 1pm CET
The roundtable discussion will propose the idea of the reaffirmation of digital technologies today in enabling the sharing of knowledge horizontally in the so-called cultural sector. What is the capacity for solidarity and care between higher education in arts and humanities on the one side, and the growing precariat amidst the COVID-19 crisis on the other? How to depart from culture seen merely as capital and spectacle towards digital technology as distributive and emancipatory? The discussion will build upon radical pedagogies in learning and digital technologies as a means for transforming economic relations and the societal distribution of resources.

The webinar focuses on the survival struggle that event and festival industry professionals, entrepreneurs and companies currently face. Taking a look not only at what new skills we have to develop, but what new opportunities and services we can develop at the same time. A digital leap is a reality for some. Hybrid events and virtual solutions are emerging at an increasing speed. Do we simply cope, or can we tackle the challenges and create even new kinds of opportunities for performers, businesses and sponsors as well as new audiences? Join us to hear current cases, best practices and discuss what the future of festivals could be!
