The Conference 2023

Event Details

The Conference is a two-day gathering in Malmö, Sweden. A thousand curious minds from all over the world meet to delve into the promises and pitfalls of human-machine-nature-and-more relationships. Guided by weavers, builders, visionaries, caregivers, and creative leaders from across disciplines, we sift through complexity and make connections across our analog and digital worlds.

In August 2023, we’re delving into the soft middles of the systems that shift and shape us. We’ll explore repair as growth, tools that take care, tending to transformation and interconnection, and finding balance in our spinning times.

It’s two days of porous space and entangled content, curated so that people connect and practices intersect. We want folks to walk away inspired to get in right relationship with ourselves, each other, our technologies and the planet (and beyond!).


We invite speakers from all over the world, representing a wide range of disciplines. On stage you can expect to find anything from brain scientists and activists to design experts, chefs and artists who will cover topics like AI, boredom, architecture and outer space. The experience is like going to your favorite arts museum, dinner at a professor’s house, and a business retreat with your best friend, all wrapped up in a down-to-earth format.

Have a look at who’s spoken on our stages over the last decade—our video archive has 300+ recorded talks from 2011-2022.


The Conference-goers represent a wide range of industries and expertise. They’re a mix of communicators, creatives and executives with a common interest in systems, digital practices and how the world works—and how the world could work better. There are product developers, architects, publishers, designers, culture workers, corporate and public executives, librarians, organisers, researchers and a whole lot more. The diversity of The Conference crowd is what makes for interesting conversations and exciting collaborations—with peers and peers-to-be, alike. But don’t take our word for it, see what others have to say.


The Conference is a two-day gathering on August 29-30, 2023 in Malmö, Sweden. On stage you can expect experts from a wide array of disciplines. Speakers, program and side events will be announced continuously during the spring.
