The Culture Bar: Bonus Episode Technology & the Arts — future predictions
In this bonus episode of The Culture Bar podcast, we are sharing something a little bit different with you; a compilation of responses to a special bonus question we asked some of our guests from previous episodes.
We asked this post-interview question: ‘How will technology influence arts and culture?’.
These informative, insightful ideas, predictions and thoughts have been edited together so you can hear how music and arts experts think digital and tech will impact the sector, and what this might look like.
You will hear opinions from:
Professor Anatol Lieven of Georgetown University in Qatar, from our first episode ‘The Green New Deal and the Arts’, thinking about technology in the context of architecture, sustainability and public spaces.
Arts development and fundraising experts Diana Williams, Simon Fairclough from CBSO, and Charlotte Appleyard from Royal Academy of Arts appeared in our second episode ‘Sponsorship in a Pandemic’, and talked about the need for a blended approach of live and digital.
Guests Nadia Race Director of International Engagement at the British Museum, Roy Luxford Planning and Operations Director from Edinburgh International Festival and Rafi Gokay-Wol Director of Touring at HarrisonParrott talked in-depth about technology and culture in episode Number 3 ‘International Cultural Exchange’, and gave us an international perspective on tech and the arts.
Our fourth podcast ‘Tech, COVID and the Future’ was exactly about this topic and explored in-depth by Till Janczukowicz from Idagio, Ben Hogwood from Naxos, and Silvia Pietrosanti from Pentatone, and provided insights into how tech gives greater access to new audiences and breaks down barriers.
Choral experts Paul Evans, Canon of Ely Cathedral, Sofi Jeannin Chief Conductor BBC Singers and Music Director of the Maîtrise de Radio France, and Tido Visser Artistic Director of Netherlands Chamber Choir from episode Number 5 ‘How can sacred music be relevant in a secular society?’ discussed how we need to increasingly think about music as a visual medium.
Finally, in episode Number 10 ‘Oil & Water: Can Art and Digital Mix?’ mixed media artist Laura Hendricks and Assistant Art Gallery Curator Wells Fray-Smith from Whitechapel Gallery reflected on how technology can help communicate artworks to audiences.
The Culture Bar is a podcast series created by HarrisonParrott focussing on conversations in culture and the arts.
