We are living in a time where everyone has a camera phone. We create our own road to stardom through SoMe. Bad publicity is good publicity and storytelling is the key. Why did they make it to the top? How did they make it to the top? In which way does SoMe let us side step the traditional road?

This TALK is about technology and how it gives possibilities that that can change the future of fashion design. Technology enables designers to create their design, patterns and avatar models on their own laptop, and with the push of a button manufacturing their collection without the traditional patternmaker and studio model. Cutting costs and time. How is this changing the future for emerging fashion designers today? What is the future for emerging designers?

This is the TALK you don’t want to miss! We sit down with Karin Hindsbo, the director of THE NATIONAL MUSEUM OF ART in Norway.

In a time were museums are struggling to change in accordance with time and are communicating to rather than with their audiences, what is the master plan to lead the new National Museum into the future? How will The National Museum engage it’s audience through programs and exhibitions. What is going to be the biggest change after the opening of the new museum? What’s the driver behind The National Museum’s social media work? How will The National Museum contribute to a lively dialogue in a constantly changing landscape?
