    You do not need to know much about art or practice it yourself. Music, photography, dance, film … art inspires and affects everyone. Art touches your subconsciousness, your feelings, your drives. Art activates creativity and brings people together.

    Meet artists and feel their mastery at close quarters. Meet scientists and leadership experts and reflect with them. Connect with and learn from other organizations

    Renaissance is also an experiential and pragmatic learning journey in which you continuously translate your insights into your daily life and work.
