The New Era of Festivals: Expanding beyond Hybrid

📆 Thursday 19 May: 11H30-13H | Marina Stage

Festivals are looking to broaden their work to year-round activities, with COVID having been a major catalyst in these reflections. To help those that are looking to expand but are undecided on how to do so, we have brought together a panel of four festivals that have already been doing year-round activities for a number of years. Come learn from fellow festivals, what has worked and what hasn’t, and their advice to others looking to grow their activities.

This event will be followed by an invitation-only Stand-up Lunch sponsored by Artinii (invitations will be handed directly to the members of the audience).

👉 Speakers will be announced soon
