Expert facilitators have designed a unique workshop experience that they have never done before. There are three main themes:

Connect to yourself and others

Workshops that support the inner journey and create deep connections with the group.

Explore the unknown and unexpected

Facilitation in times of uncertainty, helping to navigate when there is no plan.

Expand your skill and toolbox

Useful tricks, tools and methods to rise to the next level of facilitation.

The Schedule

You can hover over the agenda to zoom in. Or, view our full size agenda with even more information at the below link.

The Festival Space

As a festival guest, you will emerge in our digital space - hosted on Welo - that will facilitate deeper connections and conversations among all guests. As we know it from an onsite festival, you might have the most interesting encounters outside of the official workshops - around a fireside, at the bar or in the library...

There will be 3 main areas

Reception & Help Desk

At any time, there will be someone to guide and support you with information and a smile.

Wellness & Connection Area

Spaces for you to connect to yourself and other festival guests.

Creation, Learning & Sharing

Spaces for you to co-create, play, explore your creativity, and learn with and from others.
