FORUM OF THE FUTURE

  • 19:30 - 20 October, 2016
FORUM OF THE FUTURE
FORUM OF THE FUTURE, CMPorto
CMPorto

The Forum of the Future is an annual international festival dedicated to thought-provoking debates and performances, held in Porto, whose main objective is to invite guests from different disciplines to discuss key issues facing contemporary societies. Founded and organised by Porto Municipal Council since 2014, the Forum of the Future’s strategic partners are the Serralves Foundation, Casa da Música, the São João National Theatre and the University of Porto.

Amongst many possible definitions, a “liaisons” may be defined as a union, tie or bond. There are of course many other definitions. One that lies closer to the goal behind this year’s Forum of the Future – whose theme, “Liaisons”, is no accident - concerns the idea that a connection articulates different ways of seeing and thinking.
This is the core idea underpinning this ‘festival of thought’ – to use the poignant definition coined by Paulo Cunha e Silva. The festival aims to focus on paths which will open up new channels towards knowledge and intervention in the city of Porto.
Paths that will adopt a panoptic and plural gaze, and enable us to think about Life, Death, War, Peace, Faith and Culture; reflect about the ways we relate to each other in the contemporary era; or think about the manner in which Europe is handling terrorism, racism or the tragedy of the refugee crisis. This gaze also extends to ideas emerging from Africa or the Middle East, and the use of communication by artists from other continents, which undermines a Eurocentric vision and reveals the universal reach of their works. This gaze also highlights those in the West who explore the limits of the relationship between the arts and sciences, in the search not so much of a connection per se, but rather the long list of possibilities offered by connections.

From November 1-6, connect to the Forum of the Future.
