Future THU events and projects will be revealed on the Gnomon Stage

September saw the Trojan Horse Was a Unicorn conference return for a third triumphant year. With invaluable talks from industry leading creative talent, as well as giving attendees a chance to meet their heroes, the festival has quickly become an event artists can't miss.

The runaway success of the festival has lead to the launch of THU TV, however the future of the THU event itself has remained uncertain. To clear things up, event founder Andre Luis and Ambassador Scott Ross will discuss what's next on the Gnomon Stage in LA on Thursday 19 November.

Detailing both THU's future and new projects in the making, the talk will feature appearances from THU speakers, including Alberto Mielgo, Robh Ruppel, Frank Tzeng, Jeremy Mann, Alessandro Baldasseroni, Loic Zimmermann, Louie Tucci, Justin Fields, Devon Fay, Andrew Schmidt, Dan Luvisi, and many more.

Tickets are available through Eventbrite, but if you can't make it in person, the presentation will be streamed live from the THU Livestream channel. With the first-come-first-served seating sure to fill up fast, early arrival is recommended to avoid disappointment. See full event details below.
