Dear Jonas, I am writing to invite you to participate in the 2018 edition of Resonate Festival. The festival takes place this year 18 - 21st April. Resonate is a platform for networking, information, knowledge sharing and education, that brings together top researchers and performers who regularly use technology to do their jobs.The festival lasts four days this year and as always, provides an overview of current situation in the fields of music, visual arts and digital culture. Guest artists, lecturers, musicians and other participants are chosen to represent the cutting edge of the contemporary creative industry in the world. This is the 7th edition of the festival taking place in the heart of Belgrade city. The invitation includes a speaker fee, flights, accommodation, food and access to the music programme of the festival. We would be delighted to have you as part of this years festival. Please let us know if you have any questions or require further information.
This is unfortuante, as I really don't feel like traveling during those days, but alas, I shall comply with the wishes of the board.
****Update. After careful consideration I've decided not to participate, despite the advise from the board, but new information surfaced that Resonate still hasn't paid last years participatns, so in solidarity with them, I have declined to participate. Please note that this is not a disregard of your advise, rather a position of a decision that had to be made quickly based on this new information. Trust that in the future, I shall put these things to an updated vote, just need to update the interface a bit to accomodate for discussions/forum/conversations.
