Time: Friday Sept 8th 13:30 - 14:30

Place:  Lunds Stadsbibliotek, Sankt Petri kyrkogata 6, 222 21 Lund

Humans are currently facing complex crises on planet Earth. Since 2020, the performing arts sector has been disrupted. Now in 2023, we are at the intersection of old ways and new ways of doing things.

In this seminar Marie-Andrée Robitaille will address the following questions:

What does it mean to be a circus artist today?

How can circus remain relevant in today’s context?

How can circus help answer broader questions of human involvement in the world?

Collaborative foresight with Media Evolution

Time: Friday Sept 8th 15:00 - 16:00

Place: Lunds Stadsbibliotek, Sankt Petri kyrkogata 6, 222 21 Lund

To navigate, innovate and thrive in today's economic and cultural landscape we need the front runners as well as we need the slower moving giants.

We need both thoughtful analysts and fearless creators. Across circus and the arts we need to work together, to use each other's knowledge, collaborate and break out of our convenient but isolated silos.

Join us to hear Media Evolution share their methods of planning for the future.
