Reworks Agora is a new project by Reworks. A gathering platform which will host discussion panels, music performances, screenings and more. Its launch is set for Wednesday September 14th in Thessaloniki, Greece. Reworks Agora will take place in Thessaloniki Music Hall and aims to bring together experts from Greece and abroad (artists, entrepreneurs and researchers) to present future initiatives around music, cinematography, technology and cultural entrepreneurship. It aims to be a platform where the audience can discover emerging topics, artists and create possibilities. Integrated to Reworks that follows right after, Reworks Agora will introduce its audience to the digital culture and to relevant creative industries.
In more than a decade of existence, Reworks has become the most important and long-lived electronic music festival in Greece, introducing new music forms, presenting upcoming talents and well-established ones and has become Greece’s premier electronic music gathering. Agora in ancient Greece was the open space of assembly, the place where citizens could gather and find solutions for important matters. Reworks Agora looks forward to bring back this ethos. A place of forward thinking on creativity where the audience can discover emerging topics, initiatives and artists that will inspire debate for future developments in cultural industry.
In 2016, Reworks Agora participates in We are Europe program and will host events in collaboration with Elevate – Discourse & Activism as well as Resonate Conference. We are happy to welcome those two important festivals with two discussion panels and two artist performances.
