SNF Nostos 2021: Back to the Future
The SNF Nostos of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) shares the same desire, the same nostalgia with every person around the world. And it turns it into anticipation and hope. In this difficult winter, it leads us to travel forward, to return to a free and creative summer.
Knowing that there is still a long and difficult way to go, due to the pandemic, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation suggests that we remain optimistic. Gathering all the forces, energy and available means, SNF Nostos is already planning for next summer, as every year since 2015, in all areas of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC). The purpose is to create a SNF Nostos in the physical presence of all, but they are ready to make the necessary adjustments to the mode of operation if conditions do not allow it.
From 23 to 27 June 2021, five unique days full of concerts, performances, art installations by Greek and international artists, programs for children and families, and of course the landmark events of SNF Nostos: the SNF Nostos Conference, entitled “Humanity and Artificial Intelligence “, the SNF Nostos Run, and the DIALOGUES of SNF.
The era of the pandemic gave even more space to technological developments and highlighted the uniqueness but also the importance of the relationship between humanity and artificial intelligence. Through relevant events and especially the realization of the SNF Nostos Conference, they will try to make us understand what is happening around, the new choices that arise before us, but also how Humanity and Artificial Intelligence interact, influence and evolve key aspects of life, like work, education, justice, history, even knowledge or wisdom.
The difficult times of this year, the experiences we gained and RetroFuture, the online version of the previous Festival, matured the conditions for the ISN to reinvent its identity. So, keeping the concepts and values that shape it, it is re-introduced as SNF Nostos (until now known as Summer Nostos Festival), proposing a renewed, strong, concentrated experience of meeting, fun, dialogue, culture.
