The deadline to apply for OKFestival Financial Aid is this Sunday 4th May: hurry!

Diversity and inclusivity are a huge part of our festival ethos and we are committed to ensuring a broad variety of participation from all corners of the world; creating a forum for all ideas and all people. To achieve this, we’ll aim to ensure the attendance of those whose distance from Berlin or financial situation make it difficult for them to get to this year’s festival but who have great ideas and are actively involved in the open movement.

  • If you submitted a session proposal and know that if selected, you have no other financial support to attend and won’t be able to come unless you receive financial aid from us, then please make sure you’ve applied for our Financial Aid programme before the end of Sunday 4th May.
  • If you’re just completely excited by the idea of OKFestival and working in the open field or aiming to get into the open field, or you’re a student who wants to explore the possibilities of the open world, apply for Financial Aid and we hope to be able to bring you along!

The deadline is Sunday 4th May so please don’t forget to apply!

See you in Berlin!
