In a dynamic fusion of art, history, and technology, on 20 and 21 of September, CUMEDIAE’s Director of Strategy and Projects, Stefanie Thomas took part in Nantes Digital Week promoting MANIFEST and its artists. Magalie Mobetie and the Collective “On A Slamé Sur La Lune” ( Albert Morisseau Leroy, Calvin Yug, Fred Ebami) were invited to present their artistic works.
Held from 14 to 24 of September, this event brought together organisations like Maison de l’Europe, MANIFEST, Les Anneaux de la Mémoire, and Nantes Digital Week itself, forging a collaborative atmosphere that paved the way for thought-provoking discussions and cultural exploration.
MANIFEST, which boasts the involvement of exceptionally talented artists, set the stage for a riveting exploration of art’s role in engaging people and the evolving landscape of communication and media in the two panel discussions “Les Arts Numérique” and “Art, Histoire & Numérique”.
CUMEDIAE is deeply committed to fostering social and cultural impact supporting artistic initiatives inviting the public to contemplate the enduring legacies of colonialism and its impact on society today. During the panel discussions, Stefanie’s presence showed CUMEDIAE’s commitment in bringing together artists and highlighting the potential of art in enhancing the re-imagination of Europe’s collective memory of the transatlantic trade of enslaved people.
