Generator_2012The yearly Generator conference on creativity, innovation and leadership is coming up November 26-27 in Gävle, Sweden. This year the prorgam is especially rich and interesting.

Some of the highlights are:

The conference will be opened by a dance performance visualizing the every-day life of a cultural worker, especially composed for the Generator conference. We can also promise that the food experience will be something extra; one of Sweden’s best chefs and sound artist will put together an unforgettable dinner.
