2-4 April 2014. Melkweg & P60 (Amsterdam & Amstelveen, The Netherlands)
The Future Is Not What It Used To Be is a three-day, interdisciplinary working conference on new culture strategies. The programme offers thought-provoking keynotes, hands-on workshops, in depth masterclasses and think tanks, all with an international character.
The conference provocatively questions what the prospects are for cultural organizations and organizers operating in a future of reduced resources and a changing European society. European cultural workers and artists from over 20 countries will discuss innovative solutions for issues such as:
What are the current and developing organizational structures and to what extent will they meet the needs of the future?
How can we increase knowledge exchange between the cultural, commercial and social sectors?
These and other key issues will form the basis for in-depth discussions, workshops and presentations. An artistic programme will complement the conference.
