Open-House Presents: Festivals as a Testing Ground
17:30 - 18:15
De Brakke Grond (G3 Panel Room) | Nes 45, Amsterdam
Two years after its launch on ADE Green, Open-House not only gave high-profile projects and sustainable innovations a decisive boost for claiming their place in the festival and event industry, it also has shown its added value when it comes to demonstrating how a festival can serve as a testing area for social and sustainable innovation. At ADE Green, Open-House will launch its new Humanitarian Program, developed in collaboration with The Netherlands Red Cross. For this program they seek innovative entrepreneurs that can innovate humanitarian aid by using festivals as a testing ground.
During this panel we will discuss the possibilities of a festival as a laboratory for innovation.
