After handling curation of the exhibition program for official Berlin – Tokyo sister city event in Japan atop Roppongi Hills, THE WYE was honored to organize and host the Japanese delegation of their peers in Berlin.
As part of their AMT Series, THE WYE held a private event honoring a delegation of VIP invited guests (politicians, business and creative leaders, academicians) and introduced them personally to those leading the same fields in Berlin.
Since 2013, THE WYE has joined Art, Design and Technology leaders together that wouldn’t otherwise interact to discuss practices, experiences, possibilities in a candid, informal, private setting. For each AMT, THE WYE partners with a different organization to meaningfully and tangibly explore a impactful topic – such as partnering with MoreTrax GmbH to build a contemporary, international bridge between the innovator communities of Berlin and Tokyo.
The “first and only event of its kind” in Berlin, AMT is curated in concept, invitee list, and partner – connecting industry leaders across different industries who remain united in a drive for innovation.
