The Future of the Original Idea

Nordic Talks

In light of the global pandemic, Nordic and Canadian artists have become inventive in sharing their artistic work with the world and collaborating on ideas with one another. Digital technologies have become the de-facto platform to create and communicate.

Still, are we losing too much when we’ve lost the tangible, real-world ability to connect with audiences face-to-face? Can creativity thrive in this universal pivot to the digital space? Can artists innovate without that shared experience of an audience? What have we lost, but also: what have we gained?
