The first annual Untitled festival will be held 17–18 September 2020 online and in Helsinki. The Festival is an intimate annual celebration of imagination and experimentation. We focus on the societal transformation and align action with unlikely allies.


What is it? It’s a festival, not a gig or a conference, let alone a webinar. Save yourself from multitasking on the festival days, facing this decade needs you more than your email. There will be a virtual mainstage for convening all the participants together, 40+ really intriguing parallel sessions you can choose from over the two days, moments and breaks to prevent online fatigue – but also chaos, serendipity and possibility to casually meet other participants.

Online venue: All sessions are hosted and participated online. The Festival has its own online venue at Hopin online events platform. All registered participants will be sent instructions for access on the week before the Festival. There are 1/2 hour intro sessions available at 10/9 and 15/9 at 17:00 EEST. They are especially targeted to session hosts but all participants are welcome.

Onsite venue: Mechelininkatu 3d, 00100 Helsinki. All the sessions of the programme are hosted online. The on site venue is for webcasting as well as for participating to the sessions online and for informal distance socialising.

Dress code: It is a festival, i.e. a party. We highly recommend dressing yourself and the room you are participating from in a festive manner. This is not a conference but a festival that your room is part of. But don’t stress, you can do as much or little you like.
