We like to thank our amazing speakers, partners and exhibitors for THE ARTS+ success this year – and we´re very happy to hear that they enjoyed the festival as much as we did. Here are some voices and nice words about this year´s THE ARTS+.
„The Europeana Foundation was a key partner of THE ARTS+ 2017 and helped to investigate how Europe’s shared cultural heritage can be used for new creative projects. During the five days of innovation and inspiration, Europeana championed different areas of interest for creative businesses. In a panel revolving around digitisation, creativity and society, we invited speakers from world-renowned cultural heritage institutions to discuss digital transformation in museums and libraries. We also worked on fostering partnerships for reuse of digital cultural heritage at a dedicated stand in THE ARTS+ Business Hub. Finally, we showcased interactive installations that make use of cultural data in innovative ways at a Pop-up museum. We were thrilled to join this bustling business festival that facilitated new connections and explored new opportunities arising at the intersection of creativity, technology and business. We look forward to the 2018 edition and to again join cultural institutions, publishing houses, technology companies and other creative minds in Frankfurt.” Europeana
“It was a sheer pleasure to be able to talk a bit about Friedrich Kittler, mentioning what he had to say about keeping the apparatus going: on and off and again. I hope there will come a time, Frankfurter Buchmesse and THE ARTS+ pay homage to Kittler, or the Adorno of the digital.” Chris Dercon
“It was great for us to be part of THE ARTS+! Thank you very much for choosing us. We made very good contacts at the fair; the idea of THE ARTS+ is excellent.” Rosa Sala, CVO/CEO – Co-founder of Nubart
