The full programme is published in early August. 

Creativity is a force that enables transformation and fosters resilience in business and society at large. It drives innovation and enables people to see possibilities where others see limitations. 

This event brings together academic, societal, and business representatives across sectors to share a vision of creating sustainable futures through collaborative creative approaches. Whether harnessing cross-sectoral collaborations or tapping into the creative potential of individuals and company cultures, they all agree that creative practices have an undeniable ability to bridge gaps and shape a better future.
