The Festival 2023
15 June 2023 | 13–15 June 2024
Live in Berlin
We’re finally here: the brand new programme of the 6th edition of the Creative Bureaucracy Festival is now live. See all speakers, sessions and formats that will shape our festival and make it louder, bolder, and more inspiring than ever!
Discover the dynamics behind a bureaucracy of “impact, trust, futures, networks, unlearning, action, justice, and imagination” and join more than 1,000 fellow creative bureaucrats by getting your ticket for Berlin for only 29 EUR in our ticketshop. You can also register for the free digital livestream of our mainstage programme here.
In 73 sessions, more than 150 speakers from more than 30 countries will present innovative solutions for the administration of tomorrow: faster digitalisation, strategies for comprehensive equality, a more skilled work force, and better coordination of collective action on the biggest challenges of our time.
Doors will open at 8:00 (CEST) and all programme sessions will run between 9:00 – 19:00 (CEST). And to ensure this really feels like the festival we all deserve, this year we’re excited to also offer an evening of music and entertainment until late into the night.
