THE FIKA SESSION
"It's the conversation you never get to have"
The Fika Session is a community plattform for creatives to discuss & network whilst enjoying great music, drinks, design & arts. An interview & Q&A is a significant part of the live session to create a discussion to expand on connecting industries. The fika sessions is all about connection, communication, quality & creativity! Fika is a Scandinavian ritual that involves coffee and a good chat - it's all about communication! It takes you out of you everyday and gives you a minute to focus on what's in front of you - boldly and honestly.
Each month features an artists + dj + 2 panelists to interview about their experiences on an industry topic (isms/creative freedom/importance of an online presence/value/sustainability) and then I open up for a Q&A with the audience on the topic to create a discussion in between everyone.
This months Topic:
SUSTAINABILITY - We're talking about how people within the creative arts/industries make or can make their craft a sustainable income.
