[Invitation] Guest Curator at \#OpenVillage: support selected healthcare and social projects with sustainability advice and business development

OpenVillage is a participatory built festival gathering outstanding community projects from all over the world which are on their way to a new health and social care ecosystem. The Festical is structured in three parts: a speedy discovery of promising projects from around the world; hands on work on business modeling and sustainability; finally, technical knowledge sharing and learning new skills from health practitioners, data analysts, policy makers, investors etc:

Day 1 | Meeting protagonists of revolutionary health and social care projects

Day 2 | Business modeling: hands on discussions and intimate networking with selected projects

Day 3 | Technical learning and knowledge sharing around health data, policy and investments (example sessions: Healthcare Paradoxes; Collaborative Design and Inclusion of Migrants, Masters of Networks for advanced data visualization and analysis, and more).

We’d like to bring you in for the whole festival, as a guest curator providing support for the business track we call Financing care. You would be involved in a low effort in the runup to the event, and our in-house community curators are tasked with keeping you up to speed and point you in the direction of most relevant projects.

A process for working together with community Curators

August | Community curators prepare 5 solid sessions & 1 blog post with a synthetic outline which you will receive

September | Preliminary call: Community + Guest Curators

September-October | Guest Curators leave comments online with feedback to relevant sessions

#OpenVillage Pre-event | Power Pitch Masterclass with curators and session leaders to optimize delivery at the Festival TBC

#OpenVillage Main Event 19-21 Oct | Guest Curators attend sessions and provide support and evaluation

If this sounds interesting for you, a first thing to do right now is to send us a photo and a short biography. We will announce your participation in a post like this one.
