The ArtTech Forum 2021 took place in collaboration with Sabancı University on 28th September, 13:00 – 18:30 (CET)
We were proud to partner for the 5th edition of the ArtTech Forum with Sabancı University, Istanbul and to associate prestigious representatives of international organizations from diverse backgrounds who presented their contribution in the cultural and creative industries field.
The program highlighted Turkey, and more broadly the Middle East region, as a very rich ecosystem in the field of cultural and creative industries, not to mention the extraordinary heritage of the region.
For the second year, due to the pandemic, the Forum took place in a hybrid format, using an innovative platform developed by a Swiss StartUp, Wyth (Ticino). We were keen to maintain the sense of belonging that is key for our community, and we encouraged not only networking but also active participation.
We also awarded the 5th ArtTech Prize to one of the 8 innovative startups selected by an international jury.
A special session was also dedicated to 4 start-ups among the 32 we have selected since 2017 to participate in the ArtTech Prize.
