Under the theme #together, the festival will gather in its online and offline program organizations, designers, initiatives and events that offer a focus on the importance, success and contribution creative industries have in society, especially in a post-pandemic reality. We are all looking for new ways to redesign everyday life, we are more concerned with the impact we have on the environment, we are more preoccupied by the future we determine, by collaboration and inclusion.

The main venue of the festival will be Combinatul Fondului Plastic, home of an extremely valuable and effervescent artistic community (, which will host some of the exhibitions from the # rdw2021 program.
