Forum 2021

The ArtTech Forum 2021 will take place in collaboration with Sabancı University on 28th September, 13:00 – 18:30 (CET)

We are 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 will present their contribution in the cultural and creative industries field.

The program will highlight 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 will take place in a hybrid format, using an innovative platform developed by a Swiss StartUp, Wyth (Ticino). We are keen to maintain the sense of belonging that is key for our community, and we will encourage not only networking but also active participation.

We will also award the 5th ArtTech Prize to one of the 8 innovative startups selected by an international jury. Startup companies will pitch online and will participate in a Q&A session.

A special session will also be dedicated to 4 start-ups among the 32 we have selected since 2017 to participate in the ArtTech Prize.

While this year will be still a little different, we anticipate an opportunity to broaden the ArtTech audience.

Registrations for the ArtTech Forum are open.

The program will be updated regularly.


This year for the first time, we will propose Pre-Forum Sessions. Check out the program here!
