Schönhauser Allee, Berlin
Veranstalter: Open Knowledge Foundation
OKFestival, the Open Knowledge Festival, is back!
Join us from July 15th – 17th 2014 for an international gathering of open communities in Berlin. As well as the two days of keynote lectures, discussion sessions, workshops and hackathons, there’ll be additional fringe events around the city. We look forward to seeing you there!
This year’s OKFestival will build on many years of successful international open knowledge events – including OKFestival 2012 and OKCon 2013 – to create a meeting that is focused on turning open knowledge into positive action.
What are the defining qualities of OKFestival?
Global: We welcome, reach out to, and offer a platform to anyone interested and/or involved in the Open movement.
Diverse and inclusive: OKFestival embraces global diversity – we’re keen to see attendees from all backgrounds. Add your voice to the mix!
Participatory: It’s OKFestival attendees that make the event! You will run and wrangle sessions – work in groups, hack, discuss, debate – shaping the event and its outcomes.
OKFestival is a great opportunity for those who are completely new to the idea of the Open Movement to meet open movement makers, thinkers, activists, and researchers and for everyone to share experiences, projects and ideas from around the world – and make plans for the future! If you’re interested in how to use open knowledge to better understand and improve our everyday lives, and to tackle local and global challenges, join us in Berlin.
