Digital Bauhaus Summit 2014

Project: 

Digital Bauhaus is an annual summit for the creative economy. Set in Weimar, home of the original Bauhaus, it focuses on a specific topic each year and features hands-on workshops, keynote talks, panels, and ample time and space for exchange and dialogue among the participants.

Objective: 

The original idea behind the Bauhaus, founded in Weimar in 1919, was not white boxes and tubular furniture but collaboration: the collaboration of genres and disciplines as well as the interchange of arts, crafts and industries. Digital Bauhaus 2014 takes this idea into the 21st century and explores the formats and frameworks of creative groupwork, both online and on-site, that shape successful project organization. How can we be even more creative and innovative, productive and effective together?

How should we design the spatial, procedural and social conditions of creative collaboration? What works? What doesn’t?

Digital Bauhaus 2014 invites professional experts on collaboration of any kind – format designers, creative consultants, organizational coaches, scholars and architects – to share their lessons learned and to explore old and new modes and models of working together.

Digital Bauhaus is a new annual conference format for the creative economy. Set in Weimar, home of the original Bauhaus, it focuses on a specific topic each year and features hands-on workshops, keynote talks, panels and ample time and space for exchange and dialogue among the participants.
