The tricky thing about the future is determining your part in it. It’s easy to look in from the outside and predict a trend or movement; it’s harder knowing how big of a part you’ll have in making these changes.
Throughout this pandemic, we’ve had to pause and accelerate certain parts of our society. Technology, innovation and coordination have taken huge leaps forward while music, culture and experiences suffer.
Last fall and this winter, we, the people behind Gather, decided to let go of conference culture and instead find new ways to meet. Our focus is on innovation, the business mindset, survival, co-creating, creativity and art – combining these to form a better and more sustainable future for everyone.
At our Learn @ Lunch on Feb. 23rd, we will tell you why, how and when.
We’ll look to the future with these things in mind:
1. We will present out 10 most important trends from all walks of life.
2. We will explain why we strongly believe in creative co-creation and how we have seen that the pandemic has opened doors that were previously closed in music, live set ups and the arts, that have taken a hit during the pandemic.
3. We will highlight both ethical and sustainable aspects of this fusion and development.
4. We will also talk about our own role of pushing a platform for cultural and creative expressions in the future and how we can be a part of it.
5. We will highlight culture’s role in the city and its development, how society will form into a fusion of culture, city, tech, humankind and so much more.
