Open call for programme submissions for organisations until 30.11.

World Village Festival is taking place next summer on 29.–30.5.2021. The renewed festival’s theme is the future, which will be emphasized in programme selections, including in speeches, films and kid’s programme. Exhibitors and other participating organisations can also include the theme in their activities and content. We all have the opportunity to make an impact on the future today.  

Submission period for programme ideas will open on 10 October 2020. The festival is looking to identify speeches, interviews and films that are linked to the festival theme. This is the time to think through your organisation’s focus areas, goals and contacts, and make suggestions for fantastic content for the festival. As the time allocated for the programme is more limited this year than previously, only the most impressive, audience friendly and well thought out topics that are linked to the future -theme will be included. The Speaker’s Stage programme will be live streamed online. Suggestions for factual programme will be accepted through 30 November via the online form.  

Organisations can also make suggestions for kid’s programme, exhibitions, workshops, performances and other cultural programme numbers. Our hope is that the cultural programme is also linked to the future-theme as much as possible. Suggestions for cultural programme will be accepted until 30 November 2020 via the online form.
