Society 5.0 Festival: Creativity, Care, Connect

This is a two-day festival, organised by Centre of Expertise for Creative Innovation: Rietveld Academy, Amsterdam University of the Arts, Inholland University of Applied Sciences, and the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences.

Are we able to design a smart, inclusive, sustainable society without losing sight of the well-being of people and the planet; a Society 5.0? The creative industry comes together on 31 October and 1 November in The Social Hub Amsterdam City to explore solutions.

We ask creative professionals, like designers, (policy) makers, artists, technologists, hackers, and researchers, what role they can play to ensure a society based on public values and positive impact.

Why at The Social Hub?

We chose The Social Hub Amsterdam City as our location partner as it’s a creative hub where a next generation of changemakers, from students to entrepreneurs, from digital nomads to local artists, come together to learn and grow, and make society better. 

We share the same beliefs with The Social Hub: a better society is created when people with vision and talent come together from all walks of life. United by a shared mindset, together our community is shaping a brighter future, and having fun doing it. 

31 October – 1 November, 2023
