How to be visible and useful out of your own bubble and inside of others? Where can you find new partners for collaborations? How to work with the audience in the online format, and how can you find new voices in a such regime? These questions were popular at online BarCamp organized by Ukrainian Art and Museum Complex Mystetskyi Arsenal, Goethe Institute Ukraine, Frankfurt Book Fair, and German Federal Foreign Office.

A hundred participants from 21 countries joined to discuss «Creating new alliances in the book and creative industry». Everyone could share his\her opinion — on profession topic as well as on plans of Christmas and New Year celebration. Participants used that possibility to create new contacts and, of course, to go out of their bubbles together.
