Miker is proud to announce the 12th edition of the Mikser Festival, which will be held for the second time in a row in the scenic surroundings of the Zornić House, from 26-28. May, under the slogan Hug.
The central program of the Mikser Festival will be a Think Tank international conference that will network prominent experts, activists, government officials, media, corporations, and representatives of international organizations on a common task – how to design and accelerate global recovery after a pandemic and what are the repercussions of the country and region? Has the pandemic helped us understand the concept of solidarity and sustainable development? Did it help us understand the importance of environmental issues? Are we sufficiently aware of the impact of climate change and engaged as a society, organizations, and individuals in the fight for a cleaner environment? To what extent is creativity required in crisis situations?
They say that comfort, warmth, and love are related to touch. Human beings were created to be in physical interaction with close beings. Social distance, during the harshest period in recent global history, did not only mean physical distance. It has, to a large extent, determined both the emotional imbalance and the reduced social, creative, and business capacity of individuals. The twelfth Mikser Festival, which will be held at the end of May in Zornić’s house near Belgrade, will be a festival of hope and optimism, with a strong desire to turn all missed hugs into new, positive energy.
With the help of more than 100 experts, activists, designers, and artists, at last year’s festival, we mapped the social, environmental, and legislative preconditions for creating a sustainable future after a pandemic, launching new initiatives and partnerships. It is time to present the results of the efforts so far and together make an action plan for the next steps. Seventy-two hours of uninterrupted dialogue between networked actors from almost all areas of social action will define the next Mikser Festival as a call for a general mobilization of all progressive forces. Topics are well known: better air, cleaner water, healthier country, circular economy, improved legislation, social solidarity, sustainable design, strengthened culture.
Program units MF2021. will be Mikser Conversations, Art Zone, Mikser Music, Mikser Design, Mikser Media Hub, Mikser Workshops, and Mikser Design Camp. The Mikser talks will take place in the “InŠtalacija” venue, a hall of 350 m2 in Zornić’s house. The number of spectators present in the hall is to be determined accordingly to the recommended number of attendees at public gatherings at the end of May 2021. The conference will be broadcast live via Mikser’s communication channels, as well as the communication channels of Mikser’s media partners.
