Join us during the Creative Ring Sum-It (Oct 22-24, Eindhoven)

Fellow creative,

We warmly invite you to Sum-It: a one-of-a-kind event, where creative communities find the tools to shape tomorrow’s urban narratives. Sum-It takes you beyond inspiration-by-example and provides you with actionable tools, ready to be implemented in your daily practice. A must-attend for smart-city stakeholders & policy makers, digital innovators, community- and ecosystem builders, public libraries, grassroots initiatives.

Creativity makes the world a better place! Why? Einstein taught us that we cannot solve problems at the same level as they were created. So, if we want to have solutions that make a difference, they will have to come from creatives like you and us.

What is relatively easy, is to learn from other creatives. The Creative Ring Sum-It (October 23, in Eindhoven) brings together best practices from across Europe. Do you want to know how Aarhus is pioneering in citizen-driven innovation? Do you want to attend a masterclass on passion-based co-creation and the way it’s creating impact in Espoo (Finland)? Do you want to learn all about measuring and influencing creativity in an educational context? Or co-develop tools that support public libraries in their new role in the innovation landscape? Are you interested in exploring digital platforms created in Eindhoven and Ghent, which can democratize IoT or help you monitor and boost the heartbeat of your creative ecosystem? Picking up tools from other creatives across Europe will help you contribute more strongly to today’s challenges!

Joining the Creative Ring Sum-It will empower you in your daily practice. It will also give you the opportunity to visit the Dutch Design Week (Eindhoven, 20-28 October 2018) and get updated on the latest developments in design. Dutch Design Week is the biggest design event in Northern Europe and globally renowned for its focus on social and transformative design.

Today’s challenges are wicked and they require more creativity. You can make your contribution more impactful. Learn from others. Join the Sum-It. Register now!
