The Connecting Cities Conference will take place in the context of Amber’13 Conference, 2 – 4 November 2013 under the topic of ‘DID YOU PLUG IT IN?’ questioning your smartness.
Along with Amber’13 Conference the Amber’13 Festival is taking place from 1 - 10 November 2013 and encourages you to “Fool Your Smartness”. Instead of supporting the “ever-growing inflation of smartness” which promotes consumption and control, one should open up to foolishness, a new way of thinking, that allows critical interrogation, creative thinking and deconstruction.
