Look forward to inspirational talks

3 days of creative work can leave even the most dedicated designer a bit uninspired, and even the most creative minds need fuel. That’s why we’ve made sure you have the opportunity to attend the most awesome talks during Open Culture Days.

We’ve invited professionals from the fields of design, architecture, open source and plenty others to make sure you receive a healthy dose of inspiration when you work on your projects. It’s free for anyone to attend all of them (also if you’re NOT part of Open Culture Days), and they will be held friday, saturday and sunday.
