Polar Talks 2019
The Polar Music Prize proudly presents Polar Talks, an international conference joining forces between music, creativity, tech and impact. Artists, entrepreneurs, scientists, politicians and innovators are brought together for talks, lectures and master classes to connect the creative strengths in music with the impact of technical and social opportunities.
Polar Talks 2019 aims to find solutions to tomorrow’s social and creative challenges. How can we drive positive change faster? What if creativity is the catalyst to the change needed to meet the UN Global Goals for a better world? How do we make more impact through the power of music?
We’re proud to announce that Polar Talks also features exclusive on stage interviews with this year’s Laureates: Anne-Sophie Mutter, Grandmaster Flash and the Playing for Change Foundation.
The afternoon also offers a live performance from Swedish artist Janice, and live music by students from Musikhögskolan Ingesund.
The Polar Talks program is curated and presented by Lisa Lindström and Anna Ryott.
