Title: New places for the state of Lower Saxony!
Lower Saxony is the only federal state in Germany to have a State Secretary for Digitisation who is responsible for all ministries. But what does digitisation have to do with Third Places? What are these so-called Third Places? And what potential do they have with regard to the development of our cultural landscape in urban and rural regions?
In his keynote speech, Dr. phil. Bastian Lange builds a bridge between digitalisation and third places. In doing so, he illuminates the relevance of third places as well as spaces of encounter for (music) culture and future-oriented, innovative urban regions in the context of politics, economy and creative scenes.
