POLAR TALKS, presented by The Polar Music Prize, is an international series of inspiring talks and lectures on cutting edge topics. Artists, scientists, creatives and opinion makers coalesce around the central theme of ”The Power of Music”. The not-to-be-missed talks focus on some of the myriad ways that music can produce powerful outcomes across a range of social, artistic and scientific disciplines. Music has the power to change the world and the Polar Talks inspires all who attend, to do just that.
