How much control do we have in a world of both the emancipation and excess of information?
Has the rapid evolution of tech changed the role of art?
How can artists and the individual be heard in 2018?
By day, Convergence invites artists and brilliant thinkers to The Curtain to share how they are using creativity to dismantle power structures, react to personal and political issues and build possibilities for a brighter future. We’ll navigate the online underground with Musicologist Adam Harper, challenge elitism in cultural spaces with VR Creative Director Patrick Morgan, consider intersections and the need for feminism to operate beyond gender binary shesaid.so and debate the public role of the artist with Musician Anika.
By night, musician, writer and poet, Anika will perform The Writing Robot. Annika Henderson is a musician, poet and artist who rose to fame as Anika with two highly acclaimed eponymous records (Recorded with Geoff Barrow of Portishead and his band Beak>, released on StonesThrow in the US). Writing Robot is a new collaborative project between Anika and Computer Programmer, Raoul Sanders.
