ART MEETS TECH (AMT) is a initiative by THE WYE to bring Art, Design and Technology leaders together that wouldn’t otherwise interact to discuss practices, experiences, possibilities in a candid, informal, private setting.
The “first and only event of its kind” in Berlin, AMT is curated in concept and invitee list, with each event revolving around its own topic – connecting industry leaders across different industries who remain united in a drive for innovation. No invited guest is ever asked to pay for anything, as AMT’s integrity is upheld through the invitation of those who have earned the right to be part of a meaningful conversation and not by entertaining those who have merely paid to be heard.
A haven from the avalanche of pitch-cringing networking events, AMT gathers interesting minds at the forefront of their respective fields for a morning, afternoon or evening of food & drinks to engage in informal conversation among established peers.
A curated summit (of sorts) for those who have raised the industry bar through hard work and a unique perspective, AMT #1 explores the area overlapping between innovation in the creative and technology industries internationally.
Partnering for AMT #1 is GSF Superangels of India / Global Superangels Forum (GSF). GSF is India’s leading startup accelerator, with bases in the country’s top four tech hubs: Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore and Chennai. With over 400 allies and over 20 entrepreneurs in residence around the world, GSF is quickly expanding its vision worldwide.
