CURRENTS CONFERENCE 2020 Has Been Cancelled

The CURRENTS FESTIVAL Is Tentatively Scheduled

for August 21 – 30

and will keep you posted on Conference developments



The Conference

CURRENTS Conference 2020, presented by CURRENTS New Media and our partner SITE Santa Fe, is a two-day conference about the future through the lens of emerging media. The Conference will extend the interdisciplinary approach of the Festival, diving into the two technologies we believe will shape culture in the 2020s: Extended Reality (XR) and Artificial Intelligence—and how these two will work in concert to shape future realities. Our goal is to investigate the unconventional and the uncomfortable, as new technologies continue to change faces and change uses.

Join us in Santa Fe, New Mexico to enjoy two full days of talks and panels by artists and industry leaders, participate in breakout sessions with your favorite presenters, feast on catered lunches, make new friends on the rooftop deck at the end of our day and learn alongside us during CURRENTS Con 2020.
