Open Source Festival Congress

Galopprennbahn, Düsseldorf

13 July 2018



The theme of this year’s Open Source Festival is: “Without creativity, no innovation, no economy. A clear relationship, a simple equation.”


The Open Source Festival has been in existence for 13 years and unites different disciplines such as music, design, philosophy, politics, digitisation, architecture, biology, and much more in one festival of creativity. Primarily celebrated as a music event with big names in the industry, this year, there will be a full-day conference the day before, offering various presentations, conversations, and discussions, as well as workshops and participative experiments. Tickets are available either for both days, including the conference, at 199 euros, or only for the second day of the festival for 179 euros.

The invited speakers come from many different sectors and talks are aimed at all creative minds with exchanges of various creative resources. The professional interfaces to arise in the future and the extent to which the individual disciplines will merge into all-encompassing creative thought are interesting questions that may be clarified in this context.

Anna Abraham, professor of psychology at the School of Social Sciences at Leeds Beckett University, will be one of the speakers to present their work. Her research is involved in the neurocognitive foundation of creativity that is controlled by perception, processing, and the creative process in the human brain. Her approach is that this creative possibility is inherent in everyone and she looks at the functional processes and researches the myth of the creative spirit.
