Open Spaces! Artists Connecting Free Spaces and Open Societies

This session is part of Techfestival: a 3-day festival in Copenhagen with 200+ events on humans and technology.
Interested? Great! Register to let us know you’re joining.

We envision a new economy based on sharing spaces!

By connecting artists and FADAA patrons, we increase connections, freedom and open societies. We cultivate environments where creativity thrives. Through FADAA, empty spaces around the world are reanimated by art and those who support them.

We thrive to create transformative possibilities for creatives by connecting them to individual supporters of art.

Are you interested in the convergence of Tech and Art, and how tech can be used for civic engagement, art and community building? Join our session to find out how a World-class artist with a large digital presence and engagement is building a platform for artists all over the world to help them access physical spaces and connect with other artists.

Come and contribute your ideas for how our mobile app can connect donors and donate space to artists in need. Join the open dialogue with the founders, UX designers, coders and app builders who will facilitate the conversation around innovative tools that will help Fadaa reach millions globally.
