There are things which happen
only once in a lifetime

The head has to come first
Innovative thinking

April 24th, 2018

Centre for contemporary art DOX Prague,
Multi-purpose hall

This is a “once-in-a-lifetime-chance”!

Overseas and Czech speakers will present their life and professional experience, ideas and innovations which influence the society as well as individuals. Afterwards, during a “NonConference“, we will discuss failures which have occurred in the process of innovation (for evolution may involve sacrifice).

We wish to inspire, inform, and discuss. We will open a lab for ideas, opinions, trends, concepts, and methods.

What can you expect?

Each speaker will make a speech which will be followed by a discussion, a debate, by questions, and maybe even by a polemic. There will be no coffee breaks (you can enjoy your coffee any time). Speakers will speak either English or Czech, there will be no interpreting.


11.00 a.m. – 1.00 p.m.

Lounge time

We are not in favour of early rising so we will start with a networking Lounge Time, so that you can meet the keynote speakers and discuss with them any topics you desire.

1.00 p.m. – 6.00 p.m.

Talk time

The main thing comes in the afternoon. We will listen to those who are actively involved in innovations – both in the technical ones and in the innovations of the mind.

7.30 p.m. – 9.00 p.m.

FuckUp Night time

FuckUp Nights is a series of regular meetings, when our VIP guests share their failures rather than their victories. Failures which were a necessary part of the process.
