Confluence Ideathon 2021
A hackathon for ideas to build a unique arts & culture centre in India
The Confluence Ideathon 2021 is an arts hackathon that addresses problems related to the creation of a museum and cultural center which will bring together performing, visual, culinary, film, and literary practices in the arts. It aims to bring together the most innovative minds in the world and develop creative solutions for a world-class arts facility in the National Capital Region (NCR).
WHAT ARE THE AREAS WHERE WE NEED TO COLLABORATE AND INNOVATE ON?
Technological acceleration, climate change, and shifting economic orders impact the future of creative industries across the globe. The challenge of building a large, multi-purpose, urban cultural center that addresses the needs of the future requires innovative solutions that can maximize positive public impact. It is important to keep in mind the overall aesthetic of the space, which is a crucial element.
We are looking at five areas for collaborative action and idea generation.
1) ARTS x Technology
2) ARTS x Social Behaviour
3) ARTS x Environment
4) ARTS x Design
5) ARTS x Business
