Creative Synergy


We are extremely exited and happy to announce that this year’s theme is:


              Creative Synergy


We’re focusing on innovative or unexpected cross-disciplinary interactions, the unexpected and new that oftentimes does not fit into the box. Our speakers and workshops will deal with these issues on an international and local level.

A board of all the creative centers in Iceland have been working on bringing together esteemed and very inspirational speakers from all over the world.

First speakers will be announced next week!
