The programme was addressed at emerging festival managers or those who have ambitions to get involved in festival production. Participants broadened their professional skills, widened their horizons, and developed new project ideas under the professional guidance of renowned festival managers from all over the world who shared their rich experience and guided participants throughout the 2 sessions.


Can festivals adapt to digital space? How do you curate an online festival? How do you engage the audience? Can you make a digital festival financially sustainable?

This discussion looks at what happens to festivals and the arts when we can no longer gather as a person. Sharing examples of digital art and online festivals, we'll explore the pros and cons of digitizing a festival and offer advice on the practicalities of moving performance online. 


This Keynote/Webinar consisted of two sessions, in different times of the day, aiming at engaging participants from all over the world.

Each session included:

  • Plenary discussion
  • Working Group discussions

Participants were guided by experts from a wide geographical, social, inter-disciplinary as well as cross-sectorial range (experts from foundations, social movements, etc) to collect a range of different experiences and strategies.
