What is Open Space?
Open Space Technology (OST) is a meeting format that encourages people to self-organize and to collaborate around any question of shared concern. It is particularly effective when dealing with complex issues where diverse views are present. Over the last 25 years, OST has been used thousands of times and in over 135 countries. Groups of six or six hundred have used it with equal success.

What should you bring to the Open Space?
Any questions about creative work (because others might be wondering about the same thing).
Any ideas you want others to get excited about.
Any creative projects that you want to invite collaborators.
Creative people are notoriously diverse and have different needs and capacities at different stages of their careers.
Open Space Creatives is a platform that aims to strengthen peer-to-peer support and spark cross-sector collaborations. By the end of the workshop, we hope to have answers to some of the following core questions:
• What are the recurring needs of the creative community?
• What are the emerging trends?
• What are the activities that the creative community is willing to work towards, together?
