Events In 2020
It's that time of the year where the last event ends and I start thinking about what I want to attend the following year.
I was very fortunate to attend some incredible design, art, and music events in 2019; XOXO, Uenoland, Other Voices, and more. I'm starting to think about what I'd like to attend next year, so I figured I'd share it.
The fifth edition of the wonderful New Adventures; a conference exploring speculative and critical design, radical inclusivity, climate, sustainability, and much more. It's been years since I attended New Adventures and I'm looking forward to making the journey to Nottingham in January.
The inaugural Uenoland was a lot of fun, I met some incredible people and really enjoyed the creative nature of the talks. The second edition of Uenoland will be in the autumn of 2020 in San Francisco.
I've wanted to attend Do Lectures for many years and I think it's finally time. Talks center around the themes of business, creativity, environment, social change, and wellbeing.
XOXO holds a special place in my heart, a fantastic event full of wonderful people. The festival is held every September in beautiful Portland, Oregon.
I've never attended 99U but it's been on my radar for the past couple of years. This year's theme of 'The Creative Self' has peaked my interest and I hope to attend it in June.
Having just come back from my first ever Other Voices in the far west of Ireland, I'm already planning my return. A very special event centered around music, with talks (Ireland's Edge ↗) on sustainability, the arts, technology, innovation, storytelling and human experience.
Something a little different, Likeminds brings together artists, designers, writers, technologists, scientists, and others to address a single theme.
Material is another conference that I've wanted to attend for the past couple of years. It has an interesting tagline that I'm curious to explore: "a conference exploring the concept of the Web as a material".
