Special guests take part in intimate conversations on the future of culture.

Today Chanel announce the launch of the new podcast series Chanel Connects, in which they've called upon some familiar faces to discuss what's next for a world still in turmoil. Guests include Tilda Swinton, Edward Enninful, Keira Knightley and Amanda Harlech.

A series of seven conversations cover themes such as The New Heroines and Fashion's Untold Stories, discussing some of the topics which remain most pertinent to art and culture today. In the face of more closed exhibitions and audience-free fashion weeks, the historic house of Chanel is looking to the future, asking the most renowned creatives where the arts should go next.

What Happens Next in Arts and Culture?
The industry’s changed, the media landscape has changed, heroes have changed - Edward Enninful

The series asks voices from across art and culture what's important now, what current concerns mean for a vision of the future. The podcast connects listeners with figures such as Andrew Bolton, the Head Curator at the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum, Amanda Harlech and Tim Blanks (who SHOWstudio are hosting a masterclass that you're invited to), who talk about how fashion history informs both our present and our future. In another episode, actress Tilda Swinton talks to British Vogue's editor-in-chief Edward Enninful about imagination in the face of adversity. Culture as a force for activism and social change, the culture of celebrity and new heroines in film are on the cards, with Keira Knightley and directors Garrett Bradley and Eliza Hittman taking part. Hans Ulrich Obrist, curator and Artistic Director of the Serpentine Galleries in London also hosts a revealing conversation with the artists Arthur Jafa and Jennifer Packer, to talk about social, political and historical readings of an art work, and ultimately, what does make a work of art a success?
