House of Europe Festival is a festival of creativity and entrepreneurship. Everyone engaged in creative projects will have access to lectures and consultations from European and Ukrainian experts, workshops, meetings with startups, film screenings and open air concerts. House of Europe Festival is the culmination of the House of Europe Pop-up Hub operated at the Dnipro Center for Contemporary Culture during March and April.
This year's festival theme is How do Creative Industries Change (Post)Industrial Cities.
On the main stage you will meet people who are creating the future right now: professional practitioners will talk about architecture, urbanism, cinema, advertisement and cultural initiatives. In the workshop zone, you will have the opportunity to dive in the biohacking world, creating your own synthesizer, learning the basics of code writing and client data protection or working on animation techniques. Information boards will display stories of successful startups and their founders. Entrepreneurs and those seeking to start a project will have access to short consultations with owners of creative businesses. The festival program will be rounded off with film viewings and concerts.
