BEYOND 2022 Themes
Copy the summary description about BEYOND 2022 below to use in your own promotional channels:
This year BEYOND will address questions crucial to our future creative industries. What part should the creative industries play in designing a zero-carbon future? Alongside operating more sustainably themselves, what role do the creative industries have in designing solutions? Can they imagine a future we want to live in and tell the stories of how we get there? And how do young voices get heard and their priorities built into what happens next in a meaningful way?
A blog post introducing BEYOND 2022 themes and including the quote below from BEYOND Chair, Professor Andrew Chitty has also been published on the BEYOND blog.
PROF ANDREW CHITTY
Quote from BEYOND Conference Chair, Professor Andrew Chitty:
“This year BEYOND shifts focus from the seemingly never-ending crisis of the here and now to the prospects of our younger creatives and the climate transition. What is the role of Creative R&D in building a world fit for future generations? And what can the Creative industries contribute to shifting our mindset to that of a zero-carbon world?
The creative industries might have a bigger role in the transition than just decarbonising our industry, urgent though that is. Design is needed in all its forms, and so are narratives that imagine, optimistically and realistically, the world we are heading into. Critically so are the voices of the generations that will live in that world.
Can researchers and creatives push, pull, entice or cajole us towards a workable zero carbon society? This year’s BEYOND will be asking if Creative R&D is poised to articulate the changes we need, or if we need to hand it over to a younger generation to get the job done.”
Planned as a hybrid conference, BEYOND 2022 offers live and catch-up sessions online and in person. Delegates and speakers are welcome in Cardiff to experience a bespoke programme of keynotes, roundtables, talks, panels, workshops, networking, receptions and more.
