The official opening of the Ars Electronica Garden Newcastle / Australia will introduce the high-level government, academic, local and international partners that have made this program possible. The official proceedings will be followed by a presentation from the Garden producers about the upcoming highlights. This year’s garden will feature a range of both online content during the international event in September as well as a significant local program that has been postponed until December due to the current covid restrictions. In the spirit of Ars Electronica, the producers used the current covid challenge as an opportunity to expand on and open up new possibilities. The event will conclude with the launch and open call for the Future Innovators Summit Newcastle. A 4-day program focused on the young minds from the region – the real experts of the future.
