All Flows is a new two day, creative, digital and technology conference held at the award winning MK Gallery on the 11 and 12 May 2023, All Flows brings together an inspiring line-up of influential speakers from across the worlds of graphic design, animation & motion graphics, game design, sound art and digital innovation. Join us in May for over 2 days of talks, music, films and more. Don't miss out, buy your ticket now.
Well it's a bit of both. The main two days will feature talks in a conference format.
Alongside the main talks, All Flows will have a programme of related side events – such as film screenings, workshops, masterclasses, inspirational talks, a pre-conference meet-up and tours – plus a special closing event with drinks and DJs.
We want All Flows to be a vibrant, engaging and forward-thinking event.
Long term, our ambition is for All Flows to become a respected, annual event that puts Milton Keynes on the map, and solidifies MK’s ‘Design City’ and ‘Centre of Innovation’ narratives.
As part of our commitment to inclusivity and reaching as broad an audience as possible, we want to support students and other local groups who genuinely want to attend All Flows but aren’t financially able to do so.
You can apply for a Scholarship Ticket here.
If you are interesting in supporting this, buying a Scholarship Ticket is your opportunity to do so. Scholarship Tickets will allow us to invite somebody from a selection of local groups to attend All Flows at no cost to them. Scholarship Tickets will be allocated at random.
