26th to 28th June
One of the key recommendations of Bernard Salt's Beyond the Horizon report was the call for a MONA affect, a catalyst to transform our city through art and culture.
The upcoming event 2970° is the seed to start that transformation, it is the festival of blue sky thinking to take us into the future.
2970° is a cross-sector forum with a difference, it will elevate, mentor and challenge our local creative thinkers.
In a first for the City, the event will examine the space where arts, science, technology, architecture and sport meet through a series of exhibitions, performances, provocations and conversations.
At 2970° gold starts to boil. Art has a similar transformational effect when applied to society; crossing traditional boundaries and creating new connections.2970º is three days of simmering thought and action. Fuelled by invention, imagination and ideas, 2970 ° will interrogate the space where arts, science, technology, architecture, politics and sport meet.
Internationally renowned future thinkers will take centre stage. Together we will forge ideas, collaborate and determine a new way of looking at the world. The future is here.
For scientists, futurists, activists, artists, social change agents, cultural workers, academics and anyone with a curious mind.
