Discover the Creativity Streaming programme
3 Fridays (15/01, 29/01, 12/02) we treat you to a portion of inspiration and catchiness, concisely bundled between 13:30 and 14:00.
We bring you stories of driven and creative people from the region. People who set the region in motion every day and confirm why the Kortrijk region received the 'UNESCO Design Region' label. Also best practices from other UNESCO Creative Cities of Design will be presented.
