Festival

The annual Untitled festival brings together people working at the cutting edge of social and ecological transformation to imagine a social agenda for transformation.

At this event, there are no panels or keynotes. The festival is co-created: all the sessions are set up by the participants.  Every session contributes to the agenda for transformation, which the Untitled community continues developing after the festival.

At the second Untitled festival in 2021 there were 40 sessions feeding the social agenda for transformation. The first festival was organised online in 2020, you can see the programme here.

5 evolving agenda tracks

There is a seed for the agenda based on the work in Untitled thus far. It consists of five tracks that keep evolving at the Festival and after:

NATURE – HUMAN. We shall overcome the human-nature dichotomy.
ONTOLOGICAL POLITICS. We need to reset the value base for politics.
CIVIC IMAGINATION. We seek ways to imagine and be curious together.
HETERODOX INSTITUTIONS. We must refuse the normal.
NEW MODELS OF ECONOMY & GOVERNANCE. We need to revalue our economies and governance.

3 types of festival sessions

The agenda needs new narratives, experimental models and ways of working with the world. Thus, Untitled festival has:

NEW NARRATIVE GROUPS – Discover better stories of how things and people can change and what they can be.

NEW EXPERIMENTAL MODELS SESSIONS – Envision and develop tangible yet experimental projects.

NEW PERSPECTIVES SESSIONS – Adopt artistic, novel and weird ways of working with the world.

What to expect?

It is a festival, not a gig or a conference, let alone a webinar. At Untitled everyone participates – either by hosting sessions or by giving their valuable insights and presence. At the Festival and in Untitled in general, we strive to create as brave, safe and joyful online conditions for people to meet and relate as possible. We follow and ask everyone to follow The Principles for a Braver Space.

There are main sessions convening all the participants together,  intriguing parallel sessions, art, conversations and experiment planning, moments and breaks to prevent online fatigue – but also chaos, joy and serendipity
