FIBER Festival 2020 | Hybrid Conference (including screenings & performances)

to
513 people attended
FIBER Festival is an Amsterdam based festival that showcases contemporary digital culture, audiovisual art, speculative design and forward thinking music culture to enhance other worldviews. The hybrid conference can be visited online at Friday 25/9 and Saturday 26/9.

Through the lens of the arts the festival reflects upon the ever shifting impact of technology on society and the environment. We explore these topics collectively through lectures, installation art, performances and by learning from pioneering creative making-processes.

With the theme Instability the 2020 festival invites a new generation of interdisciplinary makers and thinkers, who each offer a new perspective on the relationship between humans and their environment. They create stories and experiences that invite us to question our position within the planet, addressing climate change and geological activities in new ways.

Join us for alternative perspectives on our radically instable 21st century world. Get your ticket now!

Attending the festival is free, but based on a pay-as-you-wish principle. Consider donating here.
