2017 SUMMIT

The 2017 Experimental Scent Summit took place on May 5, 2017, at Silent Green Kulturquartier, Berlin. During a full nine hour session, we welcomed 50 experimental practitioners with scent, writers, artists and perfumers to participate and listen to their peers discussing challenges and new strategies for working with scent in an experimental capacity.

This was the first summit produced for (and by) creative practitioners working with scent, invited participants will share their work and discuss their issues in an open and unrestrained environment, and was produced by Klara Ravat and Saskia Wilson-Brown.
