Atelier Düsseldorf/Theater der Welt: Global reach versus local relevance
20 June 21
In the framework of our Atelier Düsseldorf/Theater der Welt 2021, you are invited to be part of a must-see series of livestreams with inspiring experts from different countries and continents discussing crucial matters to the arts & festivals community! This session took place on 20 June at 12:00 (CEST).
This inspiring panel focuses on "Global reach versus local relevance: festivals in a time of online possibilities” - physical festivals happen in particular geographical locations and have meaning for the local communities; with hybrid and online festivals, the reach of festivals is national/global. What then is the meaning of a festival with regard to:
- Social impact?
How are these expressed/made concrete, if at all? Are there new ways of measuring the social impact of festivals, their impact on mental
wellbeing and on community building?
