Economia is kindly supported by Creative Industries Fund NL, Mondriaan Fund, EU program Creative Europe and Brabant C. 

Economia is a 3-day festival that explores new ideas and thinking about our economy. In this laboratory for ideas we can step out of the existing frame of thought. The festival presents unexpected and playful approaches looking at the essence of economy, thus establishing a fresh point of view on the economic system and our society.

An extensive program of keynote lectures, films, performances, installations,
playful interventions and workshops will bring you new perspectives and
insights for alternative, (less predefined) economic futures/roadmaps. 

Part of Economia is the second Renewable Futures Conference, aiming to push the boundaries of our thinking about economy. The conference is organized in close collaboration with RIXC and the Renewable Futures program.

Join us!

Visit Economia and join us – researchers, creatives, philosophers, scientists and scholars from different backgrounds – in our research of our economy, as an idea, the reality, now and in future. Expect food for thought as well as fun! See you around!

The festival and conference - organized by Baltan Laboratories - will take place in Natlab, the former physics lab of Philips, in Eindhoven (NL) on 28, 29 and 30 April 2017.
