Summer Nostos Festival RetroFuture Edition: Online June 21 – 28, 2020

21 June 2020Source: Summer Nostos Festival

A different Summer Nostos Festival:

What can past visions of the future—uncannily accurate or wildly wrong—teach us? How can experiences we had when the present was still future inform our experience of our present future? 

Summer Nostos Festival and SNF Conference will not be as normal this year, which involves lots of people gathering to be together in one place, but we can still share the enjoyment, encounter the bold ideas, and experience the whimsical atmosphere that are the hallmarks of these events. The Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) is going back to the future with a digital analogue of its signature summer events from June 21 to 28, 2020.

We’ll foresee the future, bring back avant-garde ideas and performances of years past, and enjoy the present moment, despite its strangeness. The collective result is something wonderfully new and entirely online: the SNFestival: RetroFuture Edition.

Expect new activities for all ages, a sneak preview of the big ideas and colorful action to come at the 2021 Summer Nostos Festival and SNF Conference, tons of music and performances by Greek and international artists, highlights from summers past, DJ sets, a virtual run (you’ll have to join us to find out how that works), and much more.

Until the Summer Nostos Festival and the SNF Conference can return to their home—the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC) in Athens—we can still return to the magic of summer in the meantime. The carefree relaxation and intellectual playfulness of these events are needed now more than ever.

The SNFestival: RetroFuture Edition program will soon be announced.
