Who’s organising the DCLivingLab?

The DCLivingLab is one of the core activities of the Districts of Creativity Network, a global network connecting regions throughout the world to share and develop practices on stimulating creativity in society to foster innovation and prosperity.  The DCLivingLab travels through the member regions and is each time organised by an individual member in partnership with regional partners. The 2018 edition is organised by Flanders DC in partnership with Achilles Design and the department of product development of the Antwerp University.

Previous editions of the DCLivingLab have been held in Antwerp (Belgium), Noord-Brabant (The Netherlands) and Aarhus (Denmark).
