These past few months have been synonymous with silence and instability in the performing arts community. Despite the health restrictions still in effect, it is now time for us to come together (virtually) in solidarity, to converse, debate, and find solutions together in order to re-appropriate our destiny.
In this context of uncertainty and apprehension, CINARS must act, now more than ever, as the meeting hub for the international performing arts community. Reaping the benefit of its experience with the Biennales, CINARS Web steps forward, so that we may maintain this vital connection, as well as to offer a not-to-be-missed multi-disciplinary online event.
The official program will be comprised of video samples of shows, followed by discussions with the artists, as well as pitch sessions, which will allow you to discover inspiring new national and international projects.
In order to offer opportunities to broaden your contact networks, as well as to meet other cultural professionals, we will be offering a virtual exhibition hall. Furthermore, we will be making available a personal introduction system, in which professionals will be brought together according to common interests, so that they can partake in customized B2B meetings.
You will also be able to share ideas in several conferences and round-table discussions, in partnership with various cultural organizations. We will offer an opportunity to reflect and make an assessment of this challenging crisis, to lend a hand to cultural diversity, to take steps towards opening borders and to imagine new possibilities that will create our common future.
With CINARS Web, CINARS intends, much like with the Biennale, to create an event in which cultural industry professionals can develop real touring opportunities, build longstanding relationships, and update their knowledge.
It is now time to step forward, to give hope wings and to look forward towards our common future.
