What is Sónar+D?

27/03/2018

Creativity is one of the main forces transforming reality in the 21st century. Focusing on creativity and technology, Digi.logue is the main sponsor of Sonar+D, which feeds creativity with technology and deals with cultural interaction, as part of Sonar, one of the world’s most important platforms.

Today, the ideas, languages and tools coming from the new creative communities are having a deep impact beyond the limits of creative industries and the arts. From technological innovation to business to social change, all industries and sectors are being transformed by the capacity of creators to inspire and explore new worlds.

Sónar+D is an international congress exploring how creative minds are changing our present and imagining new futures, in collaboration with researchers, innovators and business leaders from all sectors and industries.

For professionals and enthusiasts, Sónar+D is a unique and inspirational environment, open and relaxed, where to discover groundbreaking new work and find opportunities, learn new skills, network and showcase their initiatives. Two very intense days of talks, demos and workshops, tech shows and exhibitions, immersive experiences, one on one mentoring and community meetups, and much more.
