The way of experiencing art and entertainment is undergoing big changes. Digital and new technology diversify revenue logics and offer pathways to reaching new audiences. Many possibilities are yet to be discovered. 

Next month at SuomiAreena we will join a group of experts in the art and entertainment fields to discuss cutting edge technologies such as Metaverse, but also wider trends in the branch and weak signals. Changes in art and entertainment consumption, new technologies and audience outreach will be on the table, when the Finnish National Opera’s Artistic Director Lilli Paasikivi and Opera Beyond’s Project Manager Annastina Haapasaari join Helsinki Festival’s Artistic Director Marko Ahtisaari, ZOAN’s COO & Partner Laura Olin and Music Finland’s Executive Director Kaisa Rönkkö in a panel discussion in Pori.

SuomiAreena Festival (11-15 July in Pori) is the largest societal discussion festival in Finland, discussing current affairs and societal issues. Admission is free and the program will also be streamed on mtv.fi. The complete program has now been published. The panel, Elämysten uudet näyttämöt (Visioning Stages Beyond), is in Finnish.
