CYFEST 15: Venice is set to host a compelling panel discussion that delves into the multifaceted concept of vulnerability, drawing on insights from an exceptional group of thinkers and practitioners across the arts, sciences, technology, and design. This 90-minute event will take place at the historic Ca' Foscari University of Venice, in the Aula Mario Baratto (Mario Baratto Conference Hall) on the second floor.

The discussion, chaired by Alan Boldon, promises an enriching format featuring concise five-minute presentations from each panelist, followed by a session of probing questions from the chair and a dynamic audience Q&A segment. Panel contributors include Alice Oswald, Sha Xin Wei, Muriel Mambrini-Doudet, Brian MacCraith, and Nomeda and Gediminas Urbonas. This diverse assembly of panelists will explore vulnerability from multiple angles, encouraging a deep dive into how openness and exposure can foster innovation and transformation, particularly in times of ecological and social crisis.

The venue, deeply rooted in the heritage and academic spirit of Venice, provides the perfect backdrop for discussing how vulnerability intersects with human and ecological sustainability. Venice, a city that epitomizes both historical resilience and existential precariousness, offers a poignant reflection of the themes at hand.
