We took a deep breath with Jeppe Hein, cooked “Cicchetti pronto” with Mario Ohno, piled up a chair with Robin Treier for every missing spectator.
The Raumwelten events are over. Three days of live streaming, 60 speakers onsite or connected online, digital networking, workshops and documentary films as well as the audiovisual Ambient Lab Festival made the programme of the first digital Raumwelten edition a complete success!
This year’s Raumwelten Conference in its first digital edition under the motto “Raumwelten 20 2 0 2.0 – Please Install New Spatial System Now!” was met by the industry with enthusiasm and brought the Conference to your own screen: Live streaming from Karlskaserne Art Center Ludwigsburg was the heart of the Conference, with curated panels, keynotes, the Opening Lecture and the Special Lecture, various Q&A sessions as well as digital workshops and formats, while offering a variety of ways to make contact with other participants.
The demand for online access with about 500 accreditations and the intensive use of the offers for professionals, the feedback to the organisers as well as the exchange with and among each other, all validate the concept of Raumwelten ONLINE and exceeded expectations.
Around 3,000 views in the Conference live stream for accredited Raumwelten guests as well as 1,500 views in the free live stream with the Ambient Lab Festival and the Tricks For Kids film programme for the general public show that the range offered by Raumwelten Conference and Raumwelten Public has been well received.
The lectures, films, and clips in the media library, accessible only to accredited persons, have been viewed 1,000 times so far and are available until November 29.
The digital workshops have also been successful with around 50 professionals taking part in the “ABC of Scenography”; and with 50 children keen on handicrafts, the workshops on Raumwelten Family Day, which had already been extremely popular in previous years, were fully booked – despite their purely digital nature. With simultaneous translation of the live stream into English, new international target audiences could be generated: Around 10 percent of the 505 accredited persons participated abroad.
Save the Date: The next Raumwelten will take place from November 17 to 19, 2021.
