Culture 2.0

Culture 2.0 is an ongoing discussion project of the Forum, the key block of its educational program. The Open Lecture series considers culture through the prism of new reality.

The focus of Open Lectures Culture 2.0 is on technologies in contemporary culture: from digital and virtual technologies to social practices, technologies of setting up public spaces, inclusive and educational cultural projects, etc.

CULTURE 2.0
TRAVELING SESSIONS

The Open Lectures project regularly holds traveling sessions, in which workers of culture, art, and science visit different regions to discuss important issues and share their experiences with colleagues. Another important direction of work is cooperation with regional cultural forums, which are visited by experts as part of the Culture 2.0 project. Traveling sessions were held with great success in Murmansk, Yaroslavl, Syktyvkar, Kaliningrad, Ulyanovsk, Samara.

CULTURE 2.0
ZOOM

The new youth direction — Culture 2.0 Zoom — caters to those who are in the process of choosing their own way in culture. Representatives of different professions in the sphere of culture tell adolescents about creative work, secrets of different specializations in culture, and share their opinions on how technologies change their activities.

In 2020 the events of the Open Lectures project follow the main theme that focuses on development of societies and technology and the changes it brings to all spheres of life and creativity. Various event formats will include discussions, lectures, public talks and battles on cultural topics.

Experts from different countries will discuss the influence of technological progress on development of music culture, in particular, electronic music, and will present their unique projects. Representatives of the museum community will talk about the changing priorities in their work, and the consequences of museums trying to attract larger audiences by becoming accessible recreation venues. Together with the invited participants we will discuss the phenomenon of modern culture, ways of creative self-expression, characteristic for representatives of the new generation, digital technologies, and their influence on arts. We will also try to predict future scenarios of cultural development.

Culture online: return to stay
In 2019 the events were connected by the idea that technological innovations, such as the artificial intellect, robotized mechanisms or neural networks not only make our lives easier but help redefine our creative abilities. The program of the Lecture Series was subdivided into four thematic blocks: digital influence on culture, theatre in today’s world, design, and place of city residents in the creative economy — emotions and urbanistics.
