Creativity World Forum 2019: CHANGE THE INEVITABLE
THE CREATIVITY WORLD FORUM
The Creativity World Forum (CWF) is an international congress, annually organized by one of the members of the Districts of Creativity Network. The main goal is to inspire entrepreneurs, governments, civil society organizations, educational institutions and creatives from all over the world to work together towards a meaningful and resilient society. Different perspectives and promising solutions to social issues arise by connecting with each other, by using the power of creativity.
The CWF has previously taken place in Antwerp (2018), Aarhus (2017) and Oklahoma City (2015).
This year, the Creativity World Forum 2019 will take place on 21, 22 and 23 October in Brabant, the Netherlands. During this international three-day event about creativity and innovation, more than 1,500 professionals and creative minds from all over the world come together. The CWF2019 programme will involve these creative thinkers and doers by offering new perspectives, by showing different attitudes and by working together on creative solutions and approaches. Day 1 and day 3 will take place in Eindhoven with a various programme filled with inspiring speakers, exhibitions, performances and plenty of network opportunities. More than 100 local and (inter)national speakers and influencers will share their view on creativity and its contribution to (social) challenges and solutions. On day 2, visitors will visit one of the five different locations (HUBs) in Brabant, each with a relevant theme: food, mobility, resources, inclusiveness and progress.
THE THEME: CHANGE THE INEVITABLE
The theme “Change the inevitable” is a call to action. The world around us is becoming increasingly complex and paradoxical. Major social issues are truly crying out for a change. The challenges we all know, such as global inequality, refugee issues, climate change, air pollution, etc. are enormous. Yet we must and can help to change it for the better. This requires a different approach both in the way we think and in the way we move forward. During the CWF2019, people who put this into practice speak their minds. Also visitors can contribute as it is essential to join forces and take collaborative action. During CWF2019 people can change the inevitable together!
From idea to plan, from programme to invitations, from hospitality to logistics….
Our team will make sure that CWF2019 will rock!
