U30 – The Audience of the Future
Locarno Pro will play host to the U30 project this year. The participants are selected from different Locarno Industry Academy International attendees in Latin America, Europe, the Middle East and the USA, and joined by some young professionals from Africa and Asia. The 24 under30 will be the proactive force in a specially designed program covering three days (9-11 August) during the Locarno Pro initiative.
U30 is conceived as a platform offering a space for young professionals wanting to voice their concerns on highly topical issues. The program will act as a think tank aimed at stimulating the exchange of views and promoting analysis of new strategies to face the challenges of the future. Participants will also be invited to explore the other Locarno Pro initiatives, enhancing the opportunities for networking and synergies with other industry attendees in Locarno.
The project is tied to this edition of the Festival, Locarno72, and is implemented with support from the Federal Office of Culture (FOC)/MEDIA Desk Suisse.
