Following the lectures and debates, the organization of Facing Forward: Art & Theory from a Future Perspective is inviting the speakers to present a workshop. These workshops will take place on the day after the lecture and a maximum of 25 participants can take part.

The workshops are intended to create a link between the series of lectures and the lively academic and artistic community of the Netherlands, to bring international speakers into contact with students and professionals in the local context, and to give an insight into the themes of Facing Forward. The workshops are aimed at stimulating a lively debate between academics, post-academics and speakers on the various subjects concerned. The speaker will lead this debate and explore subjects which were dealt with during the lecture. The workshops will be held in various places in Amsterdam.

In view of the limited number of participants, it is necessary to make a reservation for the workshops. This can be done at:
workshops@facingforward.nl.

In order to ensure the broadest possible spread, you can enroll for a maximum of 2 workshops. To participate in the workshops you must also have attended the lecture of the speaker concerned.
