Hello <<First Name>>,
It's a pleasure to bring you exciting news from BEYOND (18 - 20 October, Cardiff), as featured speakers for the conference are announced.
BEYOND 2022 will address questions crucial to our future creative industries, focused on understanding what part the creative industries should play in designing a zero-carbon future and asking how we use creativity in a crisis?
Hosted by this year’s MC Jason Mohammad, there will be lots on the table to discuss. From how the sector is cleaning up its own act, to telling stories that might change our ways, to imagining a future worth working towards.
The conference will welcome the Future Generations Commissioner for Wales, Sophie Howe to talk about her role as the guardian of the interests of future generations in Wales, and to explore alongside actor Michael Sheen what this means both for the creative industries and our response to the climate crisis.
Award-winning investigative journalist, researcher and community organiser, Shirish Kulkarni will be talking with Claire Doherty, creative director of GALWAD, a multi-platform story that imagines alternative futures in the shadow of climate change. Claire will be joined by production designer world-builder Alex McDowell, to reveal how over 100 people from communities across Wales came together to imagine life in 2052.
