Talk - 9. November '22, 19.00 - 20.30 9# Sonic Sexism

Can you hear the sound of sexism? In this talk we will tune into the sonic world and use our ears to explore how we listen in gendered ways. Anne-Sofie Udsen will take us on a tour:

1. In the cultural soundscape where we will talk about 1950’s hi-fi sound systems as a “battle of the sexes”.
2. Feminized voice assistants and how we speak to them.
3. Gendered noise pollution in urban spaces as a form of “sonic manspreading".

- And everything in between...

Street art tour - 14. August '22, 17.30-19.30 7# Discover the hidden street art in CPH

Talk - 8. June '22, 19.00 - 20.30 6# Tiger leaps & Family Crests

Katinka Bukh, art director for Weekendavisen, will talk about the dead ends we as designers run into when we are stereotyped and put into boxes. About tiger leaps and hard landings.

She will tell the story of a redesign that involved a bear changing colour and an eccentric but charming editorial staff.

A redesign that won the title of the most beautiful newspaper in the world.


Exlusive conversation salon Night - 11. May '22, 19.00-21.00 5# Shadowworks

10 rules to create fearless creativity. What creatives do to stay in flow!

Matilde Digmann is a multidisciplinary artist who distilled 10 rules on how to live a happy creative life. After many conversations with creatives and artist she discovered that many of them are opposite to the rules we are brought up to believe about productivity.

Talk - 20. April '22, 19.00-20.30 4# Rør ved fremtiden

Et indblik i scenarie- og oplevelsesdesign

Fremtiden er fuldstændig ubegribelig. Ikke desto mindre - eller måske netop derfor - er det yderst vigtigt at vi forholder os til den. Scenariebaseret design kan anvendes som værktøj til at bygge organisationer, der er fleksible og forandringsparate og metoden giver mulighed for at træffe bedre beslutninger lige her og nu.


Talk - 23. Februar '22, 19.00-20.30 3# Kvindeøkonomien

Hvordan kan du som kvinde tage ejerskab og kontrol over din egen økonomi? Kvinder kan have stor indflydelse på hvordan vi kan stille os selv økonomisk stærkere.

Det starter med at vi begynder at interessere os for og tale mere om penge samt bliver mere risikovillige. Et af de områder vi helt sikkert kan blive endnu bedre til er lønforhandling. Det er også den hurtigste og mest effektive måde at lukke det nuværende ”Pay Gap” på.

Conversation Salon – Going freelance Open Call

We are starting a networking group, to help freelancers find their way as independent creatives. The group will be a space for you to exchange experiences and knowledge: about salaries, client handling, cost estimates and everything else

Send us an email at with a short description of yourself and why you want to join.


Talk - 8. December '21, 19.00-20.30 2# Why we build a feministic company

Equal payment?
Equal office hours?
And no work every second friday?

This is the reality at the gaming studio Triple Topping.

Talk - 24. November '21, 19.00 - 20.30 #1 You should smile more

Design speaker and graphic designer, Julie Katrine Andersen, will reflect philosophically and scientifically about the dark sides of creativity.

Creativity is seen as an attractive character trait and a necessary competence in the future workplace. But is creativity really such a bed of roses?
