For­ward Fes­ti­val: Cre­ativ­i­ty & Design in Times of Post-Digitalization

12. March 2021
16:00 – 22:00

What about cre­ativ­i­ty in times of lock­downs? Can cre­ative peo­ple be ful­ly dri­ven into dig­i­ti­za­tion and what are the oppor­tu­ni­ties and chal­lenges of this spe­cial time? For­ward Fes­ti­val 2021 is ded­i­cat­ed to these ques­tions with design icon Ste­fan Sag­meis­ter and his brand new talk, pho­tog­ra­phy leg­end Mar­tin Parr, con­sult­ing expert Emi­ly Cohen, dig­i­tal mas­ter­mind Refik Anadol and aspir­ing cre­atives from the dig­i­tal scene such as Ines Alpha, Ouch­hh, Found Stu­dio and many more.

Excit­ing lec­tures, work­shops and ses­sions will high­light the sta­tus quo in the cre­ative indus­try and high­light the oppor­tu­ni­ties and risks of post-dig­i­ti­za­tion. This year’s For­ward Fes­ti­val Munich 2021 will take place as a pure­ly online event and thus inspire across bor­ders and bring togeth­er inter­na­tion­al cre­atives worldwide.

Day 1: Fri­day, March 12, 4:00 pm — 10:00 pm

Day 2: Sat­ur­day, March 13, 2:00 pm — 7:00 pm

The event is spon­sored by bay­ern design and the Bavar­i­an State Min­istry of Eco­nom­ic Affairs, Region­al Devel­op­ment and Energy.
