This year, this lovely, lovely conference came at a very sad moment in time. Though somehow, it was perfectly timed, still an EU event, just about... How I wish I could put Brexsh** aside at least momentarily to enjoy days like these with a more carefree and optimistic mind. (It's simply too difficult ... my heart is broken.)
Saying that, there was no better place to be, no nicer group of people to be with and no better feeling than the shared concerns about our planet, our humanity and our rights. As always, New Adventures reflected our changing digital lives, brought to light flaws in methods and thinking, and challenged us to do better, as individuals and as a collective.
Putting together my write-up of this year's conference, it is clear that themes from last year continued. All quite a depressing state of affairs in many aspects, lots to consider, many challenges to tackle and much to change. All of which might have meant quite a solemn page. But it ended up quite the opposite. I love the fact that this write-up is looking quite cheerful instead :) As always, I used the conference site and its colour scheme as basis. This year with the 5 colours, for the 5 conference years—these colours are so perfectly in tune with one of the images on Cennydd's slides that this vibrance naturally evolved.
Let it be an omen of better times ahead :)
Thank you, Simon, Geri, Relly et al
for another wonderful NEW ADVENTURES!
May there be many more ❤
