Exploring the intersection and evolution of technology, art and cultureThe Art Conference is a two-day arts festival exploring the intersection and evolution of technology, art and culture, bringing together global visionaries and creating a platform to discuss, connect and engage with contemporary art from a fresh perspective.
The inaugural conference explores the evolution of street art with a curated weekend of keynote presentations, panel discussions and networking opportunities for those with an interest in the future of this global movement. TAC will debate and deconstruct change on the subjects of social engagement through street art and how technology can enrich our experience with art and culture.
As an attendee of TAC, you'll:
- Explore the evolution of Street Art, via a program of keynote presentations debating the social, political and environmental change that the medium is creating in ever-more powerful ways.
- Learn about technology's influence on Street Art, not least in the creation of rapidly-expanding global communities within the scene, will be discussed alongside the emotional energy covering urban landscapes worldwide.
- Meet representatives from across the art world during regular breaks, while enjoying international cuisine and a drink at the bar.
- Have an early chance to invest in astonishing new art initiatives and artworks on exhibition during the event. TAC aims to create valuable digital content and interaction with the art and creative community through digital sharing. Using platforms like Facebook and YouTube, TAC will generate an online following and create a digital version of its conference.
