Festival of Emergence | 6-17 September 2021    About    Submissions    Admission



The DRS Festival of Emergence is envisioned as a new type of DRS event. Not as formal as a conference, more interesting and unpredictable than a meeting, something which transcends timezones and geographies, allows people to ‘drop in’ when they fancy, and is built upon novel, original and experimental participant-generated content.

The entirely-virtual Festival runs over two weeks in September. It is made up of a series of ‘moments’ situated over space and time. Moments can be whatever the participants want them to be – lasting from between 1 hour to half a day. Formats might include talks, presentations, showcases, debates, panel discussions, workshops, interviews, coffee breaks, social moments… whatever is possible with Zoom or other digital means of connecting!

Moments can also be used to generate ideas for theme tracks for DRS2022, where we can keep the conversation going.
