In the fast-evolving digital age, generative artificial intelligence (AI) has emerged as a transformative force, presenting new opportunities for creativity, but also raising critical questions about the future of art and the role of human artists. Artists and designers are embracing AI-generated art and aesthetics, blurring the lines between human and machine. In Brazil, a recent a car ad which resurrected a treasured Brazilian musician who unexpectedly died in 1982 has generated much debate over the ethics of AI and its impact on the music industry. However, this is also exposing the technology’s inbuilt biases and misrepresentations.
The Report on the 9th World Summit offers insight into the knowledge, experience and perspectives shared by speakers and delegates on the topic of safeguarding artistic freedom at the 9th World Summit on Arts and Culture that took place in Stockholm, Sweden in May 2023.
This June, we say goodbye and thank you to the current Chair of the IFACCA Board, Simon Brault O.C, O.Q, Director and CEO of the Canada Council for the Arts. Mr Brault has served on the Board since October 2016 and was elected Chair in March 2019. His expertise, vision and leadership have been vital to the Federation’s work to lead global thought and action on arts and culture in public life, and ultimately to realise our members’ shared vision of a world in which arts and culture thrive and are recognised by governments and peoples for their contribution to society.
Earlier this month, we brought together more than 400 delegates from over 86 countries in Stockholm, Sweden to address the theme Safeguarding Artistic Freedom at the 9th World Summit on Arts and Culture.
In a few weeks, we at IFACCA along with our co-hosts, the Swedish Arts Council, will welcome delegates from around the world to Stockholm for the 9th World Summit on Arts and Culture on Safeguarding Artistic Freedom. Registration for the Summit will close on 14 April 2023 at 21.00 CEST, so please hurry to ensure your seat at this important conversation.
As co-hosts of the Summit, IFACCA and the Swedish Arts Council are looking forward to gathering representatives from government, academia, and civil society at the Summit for important conversations on Safeguarding Artistic Freedom.
