What is LungA LAB?

LungA Lab is LungA’s conversation-lounge.
It is the part of the festival where we celebrate reflections and experimentations through conversations with our peers, the community and perhaps the world as a whole. To facilitate the conversation we choose a topic or a theme if you like. This year we have chosen “the ego” and we would like to invite you to the conversation.

We will offer a variety of talks with a focus on this years topic. We have invited a group of people to present their views on the ego where we will facilitate a conversation/ Q&A after their performance.

Þórunn Eymundar, artist and designer.
Saturday July 15th at 20:30.

LungA Lab is made in Collaboration with EUF, the Kaospilots (DK), Hyper Island (SE), the LungA school (IS) and the university of Brighton (EN). This year LungA welcomes students from all four schools and invites them to part take in a special workshop, along side the festival, with focus on the Ego as well. The students will also part take in the conversation-lounge.

LungA Lab er verkefni þar sem ungt fólk af fjölbreyttum þjóðernum er boðið til Seyðisfjarðar til þess að ræða og skapa saman út frá ákveðnu þema. Í ár koma hópar frá Danmörk, England, Svíþjóð og Íslandi og þemað er “Egó”. Við ætlum að ræða um egóið út frá öllum þeim mismunandi sjónarhornum sem upp koma þessa daga. Í ár er almenningi boðið að taka þátt í samtalinu.
