From Oklahoma City, USA, to Bengaluru, India. The Creativity World Forum conference has been held in cities all around the world and next month comes to Aarhus, Denmark.

During the first two days of November, the city of Aarhus will transform into a global creativity centre, when the Creativity World Forum comes to town to hold a conference for creatives, held by​ ​creatives and promoting and facilitating thinking and acting in creative ways.

The special theme for this year’s event is Creative Resilience with the subheading How to use creativity to develop cities on the rise. In other words, this year’s conference will focus on the role creativity can play in helping to develop the cities and societies of tomorrow.

So, what about the million-dollar question: What’s in it for you? The answer: Loads of good stuff!

“To narrow it down, you’ll gain key knowledge on the world issues of tomorrow while sharpening your creative skills. And you will most certainly create a professionel network with new relations from all over the world,” says Creativity World Forum 2017 spokesman, Martin Thim.

The two days will be packed with interesting keynote speaks from a range of renowned speakers, including designer Stefan Sagmeister and Tom Kelley, general manager and partner at IDEO, as well as breakout sessions with the possibility to discuss a number of very specific and very real challenges with equal creative minds like your own covering three keys areas: people, enterprise and city.

Through this conference, you will get the chance to hear, work and mingle with the top minds and practitioners in the creative world, while at the same having an opportunity to explore the host city Aarhus, European Capital of Culture 2017.
