The HTE Executive producer team at NAE have acted as a key catalyst to help launch this exciting new Biennale in South India.
Be(ngaluru) Fantastic is envisioned as a Biennale hosted in Bengaluru (Bangalore), India. It’s intention is to envision a positive, sustainable future leveraging creative tech in open city spaces exploring the creation of a radical open future utopia.
Its founding team, JAAGA, is comprised of experienced architects, designers, artists and technologists with a track record in connecting their practice with participatory processes and government bodies. Its advisory board are heavy weights in their fields including the NAE and H T E team!
Bengaluru as a city is uniquely placed. It is a vibrant hub for tech and research with some of the best corporates and academic institutions based here. It has an ever-growing population of young artists and designers. Its is also a plateau 3000 ft above sea level, located in the southern peninsula of India, without its own water reserves. It’s population has more than doubled in the last decade.
Programme details can be found here and will be updated on an ongoing basis just like the parameters of technology!
