me Convention: front row tickets to the future
AnnouncementBy Neon Moiré •
Kick off September in style as the festival travels to Stockholm, setting up home base at the stunning Nacka Strandsmässan. me Convention believes most people aren’t compelled by just one thing, but the whole spectrum: art, society, technology and beyond. It offers a program that’s every bit as multifaceted as its audience, with talks from tech writers and political dynamos nestling alongside performances from international musicians and workshops from entrepreneurs and filmmakers. Plus, you’ll be getting up to speed with some of the world’s most innovative (and under-acknowledged) tech hubs with our Startup Cities Track, giving you insider perspectives from experts based in Sofia, São Paulo and beyond. Not convinced? Come for:
- 100+ speakers including yoga teacher and entrepreneur Adriene Mishler (Yoga With Adriene) , privacy expert Renee DiResta (Data for Democracy, WIRED), writer and musician Claire L. Evans (YACHT) plus hacker and tech magician, Tom London.
- 1-to-1 mentoring opportunities with innovators across the creative fields.
- Vibrant parties at Fotografiska Museet, the Mercedes Pop-Up Store and Södra Teatern including concerts by top international acts.
