OuiShare Fest 2017, Paris, July 5-7

OuiShare Fest is an international event that gathers thought-leaders, entrepreneurs and movement builders to think critically about digital transformations and drive systemic change.

This year, we bring our expertise (collaboration, P2P, open data, makers movement...) to the city level.

Become a OuiShare Fest Program Contributor!

Since OuiShare Fest is a participatory event, we invite you to propose
contributions to our program through this form.

This year, we are looking for innovative and inclusive formats, including workshops, masterclasses, installations and experiences. We no longer accept keynote proposals.

The deadline to apply is now over.
We're happy to receive your proposal but cannot guarantee any positive answer from now.

You can either propose:

Someone else as a speaker

Yourself for a workshop (including a detailed  methodology)

Yourself for an installation (eg interactive photowalls, sharing tables,
open design garden furniture, a solar and bicycle powered music box...)

Yourself for an experience (performances, arts and more)

All accepted contributors receive free admission per proposal to all 3 days of OuiShare Fest. Travel and accommodation costs cannot be covered. All those who submitted
a complete proposal through this form by the deadline are guaranteed an early bird ticket (however this will not apply to late applications).


*Before starting your application, keep in mind that your contribution must relate
to the topic of cities and one of the related program tracks:
power, services, inclusion or resilience*
Let's rock!
 
I would like to propose *


 
Personal information

We will not share your personal information and data with anyone outside the Fest team.
 
First and last name *

 
Organization and function *

Tell us about the organization where you work and your position.
 
Phone number

 
Social media *

Share with us your Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook page, website and / or any other relevant media.
 
Where are you from? *

Tell us a few words about yourself... *

 
Describe your expertise and experience in relation with your proposed contribution *

Topic and Contribution Type

Bear in mind that your contribution should relate to cities and associated topics. It should also be participative and inclusive.
 
I would like to propose: *

To simplify the processing of your proposal, please choose one of the following contribution types. If you would like to propose several contributions, please submit one application per contribution.

 
Which of the four tracks does your contribution most relate to? *

If your contribution relates to several tracks, choose the track to which it relates most.

 
Within the program track "Power", which issues would you like to address? *


 
Within the program track "Services", which issues would you like to address? *


 
Within the program track "Inclusion", which issues would you like to address? *


 
Within the program track "Resilience", which issues would you like to address? *


 
What is the main question you are seeking to address with your proposal - in relation to cities? *

Be original and specific! Questions such as "how the collaborative economy helps address urban issues" might be too vague, while "Is Uber part of the collaborative economy" has already been extensively discussed. A good question has a specific angle (one of the four tracks: power, services, inclusion and resilience) and deals with a specific topic; whether mobility, energy, waste or consumption...
 
I would like to propose a workshop...

We like workshops because they are the most participative and result-oriented formats. When performed badly, without tight methodology, they tend to be particularly disappointing. Please insist on your methodology and the results you are seeking to achieve!
 
Workshop abstract *

Please describe the workshop in less than 1200 characters
 
Workshop methodology *

Please describe how you would proceed to organise the workshop, as well as the tools you will use.
 
What will be the workshop's deliverables? *

An object, a prototype, a report, a summary, recommendations, etc.
 
What is the duration of your workshop? *

In any case, workshops are set for 2 hours maximum.

 
Room set up *

How should we prepare the room (tables, chairs), what materials do you need (post-its, paperboards) and do you have any special needs (a specific object or tool for example)?
 
Additional support *

Would you need help to organize the room and / or facilitate the session?
 
References *

Please share links to resources here that will give us a clearer idea of what the workshop will look like (videos, presentations, slides, website etc.)
 
I want to propose a Masterclass...

Masterclasses are focused 4 hour morning sessions with up to 30 people that teach hands-on content around a specific topic.

They are expected to be participatory sessions that are adaptable to the participants needs. Since Masterclass tickets will mostly be sold individually in addition to 3-day Festival passes, revenue will be shared 50/50 between Masterclass providers and OuiShare Fest. All Masterclasses will have the same ticket price.
 
Which of these 4 modules does your Masterclass most relate to? *

If your contribution relates to several modules, choose the one it relates most to.

 
What is the target audience of the Masterclass? *
