Where Artcor, Chisinau

  • Overview
  • Agenda
  • You have a story to tell and now it’s time to get super(em)powered! Garage48 is coming to Moldova  once again to enable youth to gain more power and control in society!

    Being creative, expressing yourself, striving for excellence and never giving up are the key factors to initiate a change. We all have these powers, but we can’t really trigger them alone. Coming together and sharing your ideas and thoughts with everyone will give you a better understanding and create clear goals and objectives.

    Empowering the young ones and giving them an opportunity to share their ideas is what makes the world go round as they are the ones who will determine our future.


    This event is a possibility to surround yourself with people who empower you to become better. Prepare yourself for a day full of excitement, inspiration, creativity and validation.

    👉 Idea Garage is not your regular workshop, where people gather together, talk a lot and then go home and forget about it. It is a much-needed gathering, where initial ideas will mature and get ready to enter the next stage. At the end of the day, the best will be chosen and awarded with cool prizes, plus a plan on how to implement your idea in real life.

    👉 Through intense brainstorming, different expertise and top-notch local and international mentors, a lot can be done in a day. What might be a daunting task alone, can be easily done together!

    👉Teams are formed on spot around the best ideas, so please do not worry if you do not have an idea - you are more than welcome to join the Idea Garage and join other creative minds.


    The best teams will be awarded with prizes and a one way ticket to YEP Incubation Program where they can develop their ideas even further.


    Inspiring minds, young designers, developers and forward-thinkers- REGISTER NOW, share your idea on the Facebook event and get ready for a day that can change your professional life! Just to be clear, this event is meant for everyone - we do not discriminate by age, gender or ideas, as long as they all carry that spark of hope for a better tomorrow. Synergy and diversity are vital for innovation and growth!
