Mobilizing artists, technologists, and policymakers from around the world, Exposure reimagines interdisciplinary and international collaboration to overcome deadlock and siloed thinking. Through art, panels, performances, interactive experiences, talks, and workshops, Exposure works towards shaping technological development for the benefit of all.

On Friday, September 11th, 3:00 - 4:30 PM (EST) Thoughtworks Arts director Ellen Pearlman will moderate the panel: Life During (& After) COVID-19 Artistic Strategies and Breakthrough Responses.

The topic focuses on how the current global pandemic has had a debilitating effect on arts institutions, collaborative endeavors, and audience involvement. The panel will discuss innovative solutions that organizations have developed since the pandemic started, and will explore how creative technologic solutions can lead us from ‘Zoomification’ to true engagement involving artists, audiences, and collaborations across distance networks.

The panel is co-hosted by EUNIC NY and Thoughtworks Arts. Confirmed panelists include Mattie Barber-Bockman (CultureHub), Kristina Mauer (Ars Electronica), Sarah Weaver (NowNet Arts), and Michael De Cock (Royal Flemish Theatre).
