The Sonophilia Salons are intensive thinkathons = idea hackathons designed to spark creativity through dialogue and hands on workshops. We developed this new format together with the members of the Sonophilia network to highlight selected topics from the Retreats. In the intimate setting of the private salons we will deep-dive into themes of global relevance and connect to a community of like-minded leaders.

At the very first Salon meeting on May 20th in Bonn, we are spending the day together with experts to explore the creative uses of decentralized computing with a special focus on the possibilities of blockchain technology.

Masha and Trent McConaghy of BigChainDB – one of Germany’s hottest blockchain startups – will be leading us through the topic.

The Dun & Bradstreet board member and the CEO of 1AU-Ventures Anastassia Lauterbach will lead a discussion on governance and AI.

Additionally we will witness a rare arts performance by the British artist Elly Clarke.
