The international Creative Forum model is a further development from the PLATFORMshift+ project. Creative Forums are two-day conferences with TED-style talks, seminars, practical demonstrations, participation and workshops in digital applications, master- classes for artists and technicians and intern training opportunities.
PlayOn! will connect the three new Hope! Creative Forums with three highly frequented and popular conventions: re:publica (Berlin), York Mediale and Ars Electronica (Linz). These three conventions are all associate partners.
The D&T Labs will present their work at dedicated showcases within the festivals, and the productions of the three development phases will be presented by the nine theatres to a broad public.
These forums will also enable an annual encounter for the partners. Here they will engage in intercultural dialogue, sharing experiences, artistic evaluations as well as management meetings.
