Hosted by Christophe Boronad – Global Local / London remixed Festival
The panel discussions will be followed by a short Q&A session with the speakers
2) Remix Panel:
The world is a remix and every piece of culture comprises hundreds of different parts. Which makes London such a great town for taking world culture and repackaging. Exploring the ins and outs of remixing and what the future holds.
