Co-creation and interaction are the heart of Dare to Learn. With 60% of the program being participatory, it is only fitting to spread that mindset. On the other hand, art and learning are also strongly linked. Not least because consuming art evidently helps us to maintain continuous learning skills and makes us generally happier. The renowned Call for Proposals and artist-focused Open for Art are now open for two more weeks!
From the very beginning, Dare to Learn has been very much about inclusion and interaction. This shows in many ways at our main event but also in building it. The basic idea behind the two concepts is that they are open calls for ideas. Through them, we can together ensure variety in the event program and explore beyond our internal teams. The vast Dare to Learn community is full of amazing ideas - help us to bring them forth!
You can submit your idea through the links listed in the end. Feel free to think outside the box as long as you keep our theme, continuous learning beyond degrees, in mind. Please also note that Call for Proposals and Open for Art are two separate concepts. Should you have an idea how to bring art to Dare to Learn, Open for Art is for you. Otherwise turn to Call for Proposals.
The final deadline for both open calls is 26.5. - but bear in mind that because this is an additional call we go through the applications as soon as they come in.
Before sharing your ideas, tough, the main aspect to be taken into consideration is the venue. The event will take place in the amazing locale of Korjaamo Culture Factory in Töölö. From workshop spaces to a stage, a movie theatre and an outdoor garden, there are a number of different rooms and intriguingly unique spaces to play with. If you are not familiar with Korjaamo or need to refresh your mind, check out their website here. Note that the whole place is all about Dare in September so let your imagination flourish!
We are also exploring ways to bring more digital solutions and virtual event content to the festival. These aspects are of course not restricted by the physical venue.
