To end 2020, we are sprinkling a little salt bae into the creative realm with our festival this year: Project / Forward: 2047. A weekend-long global projection art festival featured in Kenya, Nepal, Colombia, Indonesia, Peru and Jordan, and being echoed in Hong Kong, Austria, Italy, Spain and Australia. Over 45 artworks from across the world will be beamed onto unexpected spaces in places we need to be in the spotlight, proving that not only will COVID not stop us from creating, it's giving us the fuel to create the world we want.
CONCEPT: The leaders have messed it all up, and our artists have been offered the unique opportunity to create what the year 2047 will look like. Our artists have been informed they are the new global leaders, creating the blueprint for 2047. They are sketching what values people will have, how will they spend their time, what does the cultural landscape look like, what do we all do all day, what is our environment, how do we live?
Building on the past, on the data we have, on those who went before us to be brave enough to envision a different, better world – what will they create? They are imagineers who can build a better tomorrow, forging possibility and alternatives, where no one believes there is any.
