The inaugural Backstage Academy Symposium, in collaboration with XPLOR, will be held on our industry-integrated campus at Production Park.
The Symposium aims to promote a broad dialogue to reflect on multidisciplinary and intersectional practices and education among academics, students, alumni and industry practitioners in the live events and creative industries such as visual arts and exhibitions, live performance, music, film and video, computer games, radio and TV, fashion, writing and publishing, heritage and cultural education.
Focusing on three pillars related to our practice and education in creative production: Environment, Audience & Sustainability, the Symposium will explore and discuss the core areas of:
- Liveness in the digital age and virtual production
- Empowered audience
- Sustainability in the XXI century for the creative sector
