Forward Festival Vienna 2021

Forward Festival 2021 is all about the transformation of society through digitization in the creative scene. It raises questions about the virtualization of our lives and our work, especially during the “new normal”. Forward Festival wants to be an eye opener to the striking aspects of digitization – applied to design, creativity and communication.

Moon Exhibition

The Moon Exhibition is a project initiated by Forward Festivals and supported by Readymag. It aims to give creative people a platform to show their work to a broader audience, no matter their discipline or background. Every week, one artist is selected and featured on the website, as well as on @forwardfestivals. A selection of artworks will then be shown at Forward Festivals.
