Out of the box is excited to host the Munich edition of this global lab

Are you a cultural pioneer working on digital projects? Join our 2-day lab to craft your innovation story and use it to activate audiences online and offline. This is a hands-on lab. You will work with international experts to learn how to create new forms of digitally-enabled interaction that will help you scale your work.

The lab is open to cultural professionals, startups and businesses in the creative industries. This includes music, fashion, architecture, media, theatre, film, dance and gaming. We encourage participants whose work creates positive social impact. 

Please register here.

The lab is free to attend. Only 25 places are available on a first-come-first-serve basis. If you are part of a company, studio or artist collective, we encourage at least two people take part.
