About UNFINISHED

UNFINISHED Festival brings together creativity, technology, business leaders and entrepreneurs to inspire and motivate the public at large through a series of keynote addresses, interactive panels, hands-on workshops, masterclasses, and unconference style brainstorming sessions, as well as exhibitions, networking events and concerts. Each event belongs to one of the four pillars Inspire, Connect, Empower, Change, and will engage the attendees in an intellectual and artistic introspection of the ways in which creativity can be an agent of positive change in society.

A platform for inspiration and ideas exchange

The UNFINISHED Festival will connect creatives, entrepreneurs, business leaders, artists, media influencers, students, and professionals. Besides the interactive leadership and development sessions, the Festival aims to offer a platform to showcase and share ideas, thus encouraging collaborations that will inspire new projects in the local and regional creative industries.


A visually-rich experience spanning across mediums

Starting on May 11 and concluding the Festival, the World Press Photo exhibition will present the best photojournalism from around the world. In a separate but tangential conversation, the Festival will showcase artists and projects that comment on society, history and the current geopolitical context, hoping to encourage the audience to question their place in the world, as well as their role in their communities they belong to.
