Students and professors from universities in Utrecht and other Dutch cities were invited to a private interview session with Keynote speaker Bruce Sterling. Organized as an informal, intimate discussion, the College Tour allowed participants to respond to Sterling’s opening night lecture and ask questions related to the Soft Machines theme and Sterling’s work in general. Moderated by Stephen Kovats.
In collaboration with Studium Generale Utrecht University and Utrecht Muziek.
The Bruce Sterling Key Note and College Tour was part of Residencies in Utrecht.
Together with city podia and festivals, Utrecht City of Music is introducing a new initiative: Residencies in Utrecht. Big names from the world of music, film and the written and visual arts will come specially to Utrecht to share their vision and experience with the City. In workshops, master classes and performances, the appealing, often international artists will appear on local podia, at local festivals and artistic training programs. Their flown-in vision, knowledge and experience will lift young talent to a higher plane and inspire new ideas. The guests of the Residencies in Utrecht bring collaboration, inspiration and depth to the City of Utrecht.
