Why curiosity and creativity could lead to a post-corona renaissance.

We have finally reached a point where we dare to (cautiously) look to the future. But what does that future look like for the arts? How do we as a sector deal with the threats, but also (and perhaps especially): how do we use everything we have learned during the pandemic and how do we seize the opportunities that will certainly be there?

This talk is part of Nederlands Theater Festival (2-12 September 2021).

Starting time 3:00 PM
Duration 45 minutes
Venue Rabozaal

We don't have a crystal ball to look into the future, but to somewhat evaporate the mists around the future, we may have 'the next best thing'. Especially for the NTF pro days, the Dutch Theater Festival, in collaboration with Cultuurmarketing, invited renowned futurist, entrepreneur, and author Anne Lise Kjaer to shine her light on the future of the arts. Anne Lise teaches visionary thinking across a wide range of industries and facilitates a new understanding of tomorrow’s people, society, and business. She is a regular media commentator on trends and has been featured on BBC, CNN and Aljazeera. In 2015, she was one of the Huffington Post's top seven futurists with their predictions for the next decade in technology. In 2020, Forbes named her one of the 50 Leading Female Futurists Shaping the Future.

In her talk, Anne Lise explores why curiosity and creativity are key to navigating the future: “Art often reflects what is going on in the world. The 2019 Venice Art Biennale was no exception. The theme was: “May You Live in Interesting Times”. Was it a prediction of what was to come? -|-The Nordic Pavilion showed the installation: Weather Report: Forecasting Future – as their answer. The Biennale could very well have had the subtitle: 'A World in Crisis.”
