What Future for Festivals?

Session 646

Overview

Festivals today are ubiquitous and are diverse in scale, form, and focus. However, they all meet deeply-rooted human needs: the desire to come together, to share in a density and intensity of experience, or - as the German word "Festspiele" infers - to share in a kind of "celebratory play."

To mark the hundredth anniversary of the founding in Schloss Leopoldskron of the world-renowned Salzburg Festival, Salzburg Global Seminar will convene creative thinkers and groundbreaking practitioners from around the world to reflect and critically address the roots of festivals, the resources they both consume and create, and the forms they make take in the future.
