Uenoland is a “conference” about creativity and inspiration

Coming to San Francisco in March 2020

Uenoland is coming to California

San Francisco, March 2020

In May 2019, the first Uenoland came to Brooklyn. It went well. People laughed. They cried. They made thoughtful facial expressions. It was full of interesting people who met other interesting people. And (almost) everyone was inspired.

So we're happy to announce that the second Uenoland is coming to San Francisco in the spring of 2020. And following that, the third Uenoland is coming to New York in autumn 2020.

For updates get the newsletter, or follow Uenoland on Twitter or Instagram.

We hope to see you there.

Got questions?

We’ve got answers

What is Uenoland?

Uenoland is the conference we always wanted to attend, but never found. So we decided to create it ourselves. It’s an excuse to gather together a bunch of awesome speakers and attendees, a place to make new friends, meet old friends, and learn new ways of seeing and doing things.

Who will be speaking at Uenoland?

Uenoland speakers and performers are an eclectic and surprising mix of smart and funny people with different backgrounds and experiences. They talk about the clever and fun things they’ve done, and tell us why and how they did them. Their stories make us all better at what we do, at work, and more importantly, in life. Take a look the speakers at the first Uenoland.

What is Uenoland about?

Uenoland is about creativity and inspiration, the most valuable things we humans have. It’s about experimenting, evolving and trying new things. It’s about our Theory of Everything: that the more you know about everything, the better you will be at everything.

Is Uenoland a design conference?

That depends. Do you think design is about trends and making things look pretty? Then Uenoland is not a design conference. Do you think design is about solving problems and figuring things out? And do you think that well-rounded people with a wide perspective on things are better at that sort of thing? Then yes, Uenoland is absolutely a design conference.

Who is behind Uenoland?

Uenoland is organized by your friends at Ueno. We’re a creative agency with offices in New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Reykjavík. Learn more about us on our blog, our Dribbble, our Twitter and our Instagram.

Why are we doing Uenoland?

We’re doing it because we’ll all be dead soon, and we want to try different things before it’s too late.

Who should come to Uenoland?

We think you should. Why? Our boss wrote a blog post that explains everything, sort of.

Where and when is this thing?

The second Uenoland is happening in San Francisco in March 2020. We'll have more details soon. For updates, subscribe to the newsletter or follow Uenoland on Twitter or Instagram.

How should you behave at Uenoland?

We ask all Uenoland visitors happily accept and wholeheartedly abide by the Uenoland Code of Conduct.

That's it. You can go write a poem now.
