Oulu2026 offers the city a chance to crystallize its identity and initiate a long-term change process that will transform Oulu. As the city becomes more culturally vibrant, it becomes a place where people enjoy living and where businesses prosper. The programme for Oulu2026 opens doors for companies to promote their services in various ways.
Many grand productions involved in Oulu2026 utilise digital content and artistic elements, and a large part of the programme can be experienced in a digital form. Digital Change Makers X Oulu2026 gives companies the opportunity to meet Andrew Melchior, the Art&Tech advisor of Oulu2026. Andrew Melchior is a pioneer in combining different technologies into art. The event participants will have the chance to hear about his work uniting digital content with great acts such as Massive Attack, Björk, and many more. On top of that, Melchior has also worked on a project with David Bowie and Nokia in 2002: Bowie Club Nokia.
