FORMS
EXPLORING CREATIVITY, TECHNOLOGY & URBANISM
ANNOUNCES SUMMIT SERIES
September 27 – 30, 2016

FORMS, presented by Endless City, today announces their Summit series featuring conversations between creative thinkers in fields spanning architecture, urban design, technology and digital media arts who are working beyond traditional boundaries to explore new ideas and solve complex issues.

With a focus on design, civic participation and policy, FORMS Summit, welcomes conversations around accessibility to space and displacement, the impact of convergence on the future of work and creativity, the shifting role of public art and public space as well as an introduction to human experience design and biomimicry. Aiming to unpack a common language around sustainable thinking and practice, the summit explores what this all means in an urban context and why we need more of it.  

Participants will include: Karen Wong (New Museum, NYC), Alex Josephson (Partisans), Ilana Altman (The Artful City), Shawn Micallef (Spacing Magazine), Klasien van de Zandschulp (Lava Lab, Amsterdam), Dr. Irwin Adam (Future Food Studio), Adil Dhalla (Centre for Social Innovation), Howard Tam (Think Fresh Group), Alexis Kane Speer (The STEPS Initiative), Brandon Vickerd (York University), Jamie Miller (Biomimicry Frontier), Nils van Beek (TAAK Amsterdam), Michelle Senayah (The Laneway Project), Jordan Mandel (University of Waterloo), Markus Heckmann (Derivative), Kate Hartman (OCADU), Leonieke Verhoog (VPRO Medialab, Amsterdam) and more. 

Previously announced live performance and interactive installations at FORMS include: Paris-based A/V masterminds NONOTAK; shapeshifting electronic sounds from Berlin-based Laurel Halo; progressive composer Kara-Lis Coverdale; Montreal A/V collective susy.technology; Toronto producer and BAMBII; noisy ambience from Arcade Fire’s Jeremy Gara; and Nick Verstand's ANIMA interactive installation that investigates communication between humans and artificial intelligence.
