This session—the first in a three-part program taking place over the duration of the festival—welcomes participants from the inaugural Ars Electronica Creative Producers Program to reconvene and reflect on The Manifesto for Creative Producing two years after they co-authored it. Reflecting on how The Manifesto has manifested in the roles they have occupied as well as the skills and approaches they have used; the cohort will extend The Manifesto to further define the impact that creative producing has on knowledge and truth.
Festival visitors are invited to drop-in and join the conversation at their leisure.
