The fourth annual edition of the Experimental Scent Summit will take place starting from Thursday, July 9.
The four-day online event is the annual presentation of the ongoing collaboration between The Institute for Art and Olfaction in LA and the Berlin-based Smell Lab.For this edition, they have invited a selection of speakers to discuss issues that relate to the field of olfaction. Topics cover social justice, technology, history, creative practice, and much more. Part of the summit includes space for attendees to share their work, in three open mic sessions we like to call "Who are you and what are you working on?".
We will facilitate a live stream to this event at Mediamatic in our Sluisdeurenloods. Tickets to the summit are available on a donation basis, and donations will cover technical expenses.
