As part of London’s Convergence Festival, your Sessions ticket will take you from day to night, in a collision of talks, interactive presentations, debates and live music programme. On March 23rd, we're inviting our favourite blue-sky-thinkers to Rich Mix to imagine the future of human interaction and expression in a post-digital world.
How has the rapid evolution of AI shaped the world we live in?
What does AI mean for human expression and creativity?
How has digital culture influenced the creation and experience of music?
By day, this is a thinktank to create alternative futures with Dr. Nelly Ben Hayoun and the board members and students of the tuition free University of the Underground, learn the possibilities of love in a world of AI and robots with Researcher and Artist in body responsive technologies Ghislaine Boddington, explore voyeurism in domestic and digital worlds with Artist and Programmer Lauren McCarthy and forecast the impact of technology in music with Experimental Label Nonclassical, Musicologist Adam Harper and Barbican’s Sidd Khajuria.
By night, we'll be showcasing future sounds of Iranian multi-instrumentalist composer, record producer, film director and futurist Ash Koosha with London electronic duos: Wyles & Simpson and Girlhood.
Sessions gives change-makers and risk-takers a platform to share thoughts, collaborate and interact with like-minded individuals and discuss how people and ideas are shaping the future of technology. The programme focuses on the countless opportunities in store for industry pioneers and curious creatives alike, and how using cutting-edge creativity can carve a positive path in this era of uncertainty.
This programme has been created with support from the British Council.
