attending with how many guests?

When I pressed the “attend” button, with 0 guests, it changed to “You are attending with 9 guests”! No, really, no guests at all… :wink:


9’s a party :slight_smile:

That many people are also attending

Guests are simply other participants, you’re good to go! :slight_smile:

Still up for coming? Dont forget to get your ticket!

Logistical support

Hi @joshuake

We can cover partially the cost of travel for active participants and we can definitely help with invitation letters if you need one to travel to Europe. If you want to take on a task ahead of the festival check the ones listed here? Many involve communication. If you have other passions, the easiest is to have a chat and figure it out together. so that the work makes sense to you too! Today’s community call on google hangouts (and every Wednesday) is where we meet and coordinate work ahead of the festival - requires more stable internet connectivity but it would be super if you participated!
