Cruise: Design Mindset
This year, attendees of the Creative Bureaucracy Festival will have the unique opportunity to join a creative session on the water. During the Grand Opening, a select number of guests will have the chance to win a ‘’Golden Ticket” for a floating workshop. There are eight possible cruises to choose from, and ticket winners can register for a time slot and topic that best suits their schedule.
During the 50-minute cruise, a moderator will lead a small group of ten individuals in developing a prototype inspired by a keyword representing the workshop theme. Participants will have the chance to collaborate with like-minded individuals in a relaxed, informal atmosphere, using their skills to turn ideas into reality.
Our aim is to inspire innovation and imagination, and foster new approaches to problem-solving and skill development. The final prototypes will be presented on the Mainstage at the Grand Finale, where one will be selected as the winner by an audience vote.
This is a Cruise session, an event where guests can board a canal cruise to attend a workshop on the water. Guests can win a ‘’Golden Ticket’’ during the Grand Opening and participate in a Cruise workshop.
