Centering around the theme Solidarity: Digital Strategies for Creative Resilience, the CultureHub Belgrade Convening is a platform for artists, technologists, educators, and activists to share and disseminate digital methodologies for artmaking and cultural exchange. 

Hosted by CultureHub and Eho Animato in partnership with La MaMa Experimental Theatre Club, Seoul Institute of the Arts and American Corner in Belgrade, the Convening will take place in Belgrade July 1–3, 2021, sparking new relationships and opportunities for international collaboration and cultural exchange that are flexible and responsive to crisis by design. 

The CultureHub Belgrade Convening merges the in-person with the digital, and local with global to explore the future of art making and international collaboration. Over the course of 3 days, the CultureHub team will conduct workshops and trainings, supporting local actions and performances and sparking new relationships.

Would you like to meet the international art&tech community and develop creative skills in new media technology and performing arts? 

Practical and collaborative, the convening will consist of trainings, workshops, discussions, networking, and on/offline performances. The selected participants will attend three sessions each day: morning trainings on the creative use of different technologies and digital tools, afternoon collaborative development of digital performances in smaller groups and evening programs – presentations of the work in progress, performances and discussions. All sessions are mentored and supervised by CultureHub members.

Apply to develop and expand your ideas in an international art&tech environment creating sustainable methods for presenting international work and fostering cross-cultural collaborations. 

A full schedule and workshop descriptions is forthcoming!
