Inspiration from the Cutting Edge of Performing Arts

måndag, juni 17, 2024

Digitalisation can enhance everything from idea generation, research, design, marketing, and relationship building to distribution, archiving, and new revenue streams. However, Sweden lacks a clear platform for digital innovation within the performing arts. Instead, exploration takes place "behind the scenes," driven by passionate individuals interested in new possibilities. Xperience Next has brought together some of these individuals in the seminar "Inspiration from the Cutting Edge of Performing Arts" which showcases exciting digital initiatives from across the nation.

The live webinar is in Swedish and has a total duration of 180 minutes. The webinar took place March 27, 2024. Moderator is Anna Wennblad, Program Lead, Xperience Next. You can easily find the various presentations using the timestamps.
