MUTEK Forum: A Virtual Marketplace for Disseminating Electronic Music and Digital Creativity
The MUTEK festival adapted the international component of its MUTEK Forum marketplace.
The MUTEK Forum is reinventing itself
The 21st MUTEK festival for electronic music and digital creativity was held in Montréal in September 2020 amid the pandemic. As part of the festival’s professional component, the MUTEK Forum virtual marketplace provided online networking opportunities for Canadian artists and foreign purchasers.
A hybrid roll-out
The festival created a hybrid version of its market, offering both an in-person experience for artists, stakeholders and audiences in Montréal and a virtual experience for international participants. This enabled the virtual market to continue its networking activities with foreign presenters.
