"Culture 2.0" is a key project of the educational block within the program of the Saint Petersburg International Cultural Forum. Open Lectures on technologies in culture raises issues that have started to be discussed in Russia and even in the world sometimes only recently. During the days of the Forum on November 12–14, Open Lectures "Culture 2.0" will work in Manege. "Culture 2.0" brings together world-renowned experts in the sphere of culture and young innovators, composers and writers, designers and researchers.
The participants in discussions and public talks within the Culture 2.0 program will trace the history of electronic music from dubstep to electro-house and forecast music trends for 2030, use VR technologies to tour the most unusual museums in the world, study blockchain paintings and interactive exhibitions, take a bite of edible art and participate in the battle of classic and pop culture. Why has the profession of science communicators become so popular? What menus must museum restaurants offer? Will technologies ever replace works of art? The scope of topics "Culture 2.0" covers is so extensive, because it addresses the newest and the most interesting aspects of today's cultural process.
The Open Lectures program continuously offers new topics and formats of communication. This year we have a new direction of work: "Culture 2.0 Zoom." How do you become a comics artist? How do you record your first music album? What does the art curator do? Public talks with representatives of creative professions are intended for a very young audience, the people still choosing their future career path. Speakers of "Culture 2.0 Zoom" will help define the peculiar features of various professions in the cultural sphere, talk about their careers and discuss some professional secrets.
