Boutique of Salons

10 December 2021

ThingsCon 2021 will be organized on the 10th of December 2021.

One day, three locations, three events, one online gathering. We planned to organize an in-person Salon in Rotterdam, Antwerp, and Eindhoven. At the end of the day, we merge these Salons together in an online event. Due to the changed situation with Covid in The Netherlands and Belgium, we will only organize the online event.


Our theme this year: EVERY___

EVERY___thing in Rotterdam: More-Than-Human
EVERY___where in Antwerp: AI city interventions
EVERY___one in Eindhoven: How can you trust? Who can you trust?

Community stage

We would like to give the opportunity to you, as the ThingsCon community and audience, to share what you are working on, or what is inspiring you at the moment; or to share a call for collaboration on a project or development.

We will reserve time for short interviews with our moderator Monique and provide space on the event website to share background information. Let us know if you like to use this community stage before December 6th.
