On 5th October 2018, as a part of the ART MOMENTS The Universal Sea Budapest Festival we will be holding, along with Hybridart, one of the most important events of our entire TUS project – a day-long sustainability and art conference aboard the TRIP Hajó boat on the river Danube.  

The event will include a smorgasbord of presentations and roundtable discussions by Hungarian and international experts, academics and artists; based around four main themes:

    • Rediscovering the role of the artist
