KQED is proud to host the BBC for a very special San Francisco based recording of its world-renowned radio program: BBC Arts Hour on Tour. The BBC’s Nikki Bedi will be in the city to ask how the technology pioneered in San Francisco is creating new forms of culture. Nikki will be joined on stage by NPR’s tech correspondent Aarti Shahani, who reports on the hottest developments in the tech world, Eugene Chung the founder of virtual reality film company Penrose Studios and Douglas Eck from Google AI, who is finding out whether machines can make music and art. There will be live music from Oakland's Fantastic Negrito, electronic duo Reed & Caroline, who explore the history of technology in their music, and stand-up from star of the San Francisco comedy circuit Francesca Fiorentini. Nikki will be hearing about how the technology developed in the Bay Area influences culture globally and how the industry has changed San Francisco for artists. IMPORTANT NOTE Tickets are free and admission is on a first-come-first-served basis. Registration is mandatory at the ticket link. Please be aware that for some BBC shows, audience members start queuing well before the doors open. See the registration ticket link for full FAQs
