#What will the Berlin event look like?
The Berlin event will start on Thursday June 11 and end on Monday June 15 (full five days).
The venue will be Agora. So we have space for 150 people. The goal is to create an interesting mix of industry people, grassroots, scientists, hackers and makers. We want to have challenges from many different fields, including on-site prototyping.
Alongside Agora, we’re also playing with the idea of satellite locations around Agora – like some nearby co-working spaces or workshops, or the Tempelhofer Feld.
###Tickets - Participants and Challenges
The tickets will be free of charge but people have to apply (if you join the team you will be in of course). Take a look at our Call For Participants - and help to spread it.
We also published a Call For Challenge®s. Have a look and help to spread it. Thank you.
An important part of the Berlin event will be the Circular Textiles Challenge(s).
We plan on having a press conference at the beginning, and at the end of the event. You can find a link and also to all the challenges in the Berlin Program.
