As part of Last Dance, Elijah will perform a DJ set and join the Future Art and Culture From England delegates at the panel discussion Human Art In A Post-Human World on Monday 13th, and take part in a delegate presentation on Tuesday 14th.

Panel Description: Now that virtual reality can transform your condo into a front row seat at the opera, artificial intelligence can predict your tastes and choices, and the digital processes available to creators advance daily, how are key leaders in the arts and culture sectors responding to our interactive future?

The discussion will be chaired by Darren Henley, CEO of Arts Council England and author of The Arts Dividend: Why Investment in Culture Pays. Artists, curators and future thinkers will discuss where these seismic digital advances will lead us in the future and why arts and culture should take centre stage in the debate.

Panellists, artists, curators and organisations involved:
Lucy Dusgate, The Lowry
Robin McNicholas, Marshmallow Laser Feast
Tom Higham, Mediale
Luke Ritchie, Philharmonia Orchestra
Alexander Whitley, Alexander Whitley Dance Company
Paloma Strelitz, Assemble
Paul Williams, Burning Bridges
Elijah, Lighthouse
Simon Daw, Metis Arts
Huey Walker, Arts Council England

This event is hosted by Arts Council England and British Underground. For further information on Future Art and Culture from England at SXSW please visit:
