The format for Sonar+D will be designed for our current cultural context, and with a focus on new and possible futures at the intersection of culture, art and technology. The project arises from our commitment to continue to nurture creative communities, both on a local and international level.
Sonar+D CCCB will be a fundamentally online event, free to access and open to all, with the possibility of physical attendance pending on how the legistlation regarding capacity evolves.
Sonar+D CCCB will feature an extensive program of participatory and network activities, maintaining the congress formats of conferences, masterclasses, demonstrations, workshops, performances and networking.
This being said, at Sónar+D we believe in transcending limitations, both physical and virtual. As such, we’re already imagining new formats for the sharing of knowledge and experience. This will be a necessarily inflexive edition, which will still feature an extensive program of the regular participative activities, including the conferences, masterclasses, demos, workshops, performances and networking.
We’ll be working with the creative communities in Barcelona who have been an intrinsic part of the project year after year, and we’ll also be looking further afield, connecting cities and festivals including TodaysArt (The Hague), Reworks (Thessaloniki) and Unsound (Krakow), which will take place in their respective cities on these dates, and who share a creative platform with us in the ongoing We Are Europe co-operative program, which Sónar has been a part of for the last 5 years.
Above all, we’re looking forward to reconnecting with you; the creators, programmers, activists, cultural agitators, designers, artists, musicians, entrepreneurs, hackers and the culturally curious. In short, people who share our passion for the culture of our time.
Over the coming weeks we’ll be announcing more details of this special edition as the program of partners and collaborators expands.
Virtually, or face to face, we’ll see you in September at Sónar+D CCCB.
