Symposium of ideas and creativity
The world and humans are faced with new challenges from unprecedented phenomena, positive or negative alike. From pandemic to war, economic and social uncertainty, these events and scenarios have an unprecedented impact on the world, subsequently prompting an unavoidable change in the way humans live their life in order to survive.
In recent years, Artificial Intelligence (AI) has become an instrumental factor that drives transformations in the way we think, work and live while opening new opportunities for people, business and the society. The question now is, to what extent can creative businesses make a difference in this whole new world?
Creativities Unfold 2023 (CU2023), the highly-anticipated creative get-together, has returned to serve as a platform to showcase ideas and visions by contemporary thought leaders from Thailand and all over the world. This year, five Thai and international creative visionaries will take the stage to share their new perspectives on creativity under the concept “VISIONAIRE: Reminisce/The Way Forward.”
Come join us in a special get-together to unfold, and understand the big picture from “the past” and to “transform the past” into guidelines to “unlock visions for the future.” Inspire and be inspired by ideas, gain new business perspectives and opportunities amid current global challenges where you need to both look back and look forward with new approaches to move ahead in a sustainable way, with the creative economy as our mutual destination.
To make sure we’re all prepared to take on any challenge in this fast-changing 21st century world, we need to analyze the past, learn about the present and combine what we’ve learned with new creative visions to accelerate our future business goals. Join us on this journey of ideas towards the new world of creative economy on 24 August 2023, during 09.00 - 20.00 hrs.
