Each year, the Global Art Forum brings together a diverse line-up of artists, curators, musicians, writers and thought leaders. The Forum is recognised for its collaborative, innovative approach to the art world and draws on other disciplines and experiences to take a broad ‘helicopter view’. It includes performance, music, commissioned research and projects alongside live talks.
Over the years, the Forum has toured to Qatar, Kuwait, France and the UK, and grown to include publications, workshops and other educational initiatives.
The tenth edition of the Global Art Forum, titled The Future Was, explored the ways in which artists, writers, technologists, historians, musicians and thinkers have imagined, and are shaping, the future. All programming was free and open to the public.
