URBAN NATION Director Yasha Young speaks at Remix Global Summit 2018

Our Director Yasha Young spent the last few days in London at the 2018 Remix Summit bringing together pioneers from different industries to explore the future of creative cities, creative culture and economy. She was invited as one of the speakers as part of an incredible group of voices. Check the official website for entire speakers list!

This year’s official summit motto „Fuel the fire“ describes the energy brought together by the people from all around the world and many different sectors  perfectly. Yasha spent two amazing days meeting and discussing with lots of inspiring, forward thinking people. Among them,the Tate London, the Museum of London as well as the V&A but also many cool companies such as my freinds from smARTify, who built a free app that allows museum visitors to scan and identify artworks. A real revolution of the way we observe art! Also, the smart guys from Etsy were there, as well as the crew of Manchester international festival.

Despite Wikimedia also DigVentures, a social business that designs and delivers collaborative archeology projects and experiences in the UK and beyond, came. Last but not least, the leading ladies of Diversity Matters UK and Australia as well as the Victoria National Library, who will help the UN with the upcoming literary program, showed up.

“Such wonderful entrepreneurs and forward thinkers … ! I am on fire thinking about what we all could do together! Thank you #remxldn“ Y.Y.
