About q berlin

Q BERLIN

Q BERLIN was initiated by the city of Berlin and has been curated and organised by visitBerlin since 2017. We bring together thought leaders and experts, unconventional minds, young creatives and visionaries from all around the globe and from the fields of business, science, politics, culture and technology.

Q BERLIN connects across disciplinary and national boundaries, and shares the fundamental questions driving Berlin, Europe and our contemporary world forward. Over the span of two days, we engage in an open dialogue on social values and the roles each of us play in the transformation of our societies. Our program consists of lectures, conversations, performances and a cultural deep-dive into the heart of Berlin – internationally renowned as a city of freedom, openness, diversity and change.

Q BERLIN disrupts, inspires and empowers.
