2013 has turned into 2014 and we’re up for new meetings with inspiring people, like all the creative people we met last year. One example of a large amount of creativity and DIY-spirit is our newest venue. Meet Kulturhuset Framtiden in Linköping.

We are seeing a DIY culture growing around the world, when it comes to several different industries, including tech, fashion, tourism and more. You don’t have to be in the backseat. You can decide and you can have an impact. In our interconnected world, it becomes easier and increasingly important for us to make informed decisions about what we consume.
