##What will the Athens event look like?
Date: 11th- 15th June
The Athens event will start on Thursday June 11 and end on Monday June 15 (full five days).
We will camp out at the Pre-Festival of Solidarity and Co-operative Economy at Spithari, an eco-community in Marathon.
The goal is to create an interesting mix of hackers, artists, researchers and makers who will spend 5 days observing and documenting knowledge exchange, the festival’s existing ecology, collecting data on energy use, food, resources and waste and imagining new ways to create a zero-waste and circular economy festival.
We recommend you join on the first day but participants are welcome to come along at any time.
In the two weeks run up to the event. Challengers will post [Challenges] to work on during the hackathon.
We will work within the framework of the [Headline Challenge]- Circular Festival Kit a simple to use, open-source guide for producing a sustainable and zero-waste festival based on your event’s needs.
There will be a series of [Sub-Challenges] that fit within this framework. If you have an idea please post it even if you cannot see a direct link to the [Headline Challenge]. It’s surprising how much can fit into a festival.
We want to have challenges from many different fields, including on-site prototyping, workshops, documentation and discussions.
On this platform and the the first day of the event (11th June) we will present the [Challenges] and decide how, when and who work on each of them as well as how we want to structure the event.
