Dear all,

I'm happy to be part of this group and want to quickly introduce myself and
send you the Call for Participation of our main event – re:publica 2019 in
Berlin. Deadline: 16 December 2018

With 10.000 unique visitors, 600 speakers and 18 parallel stages,
re:publica is a very diverse experience – having a huge social +
traditional media outreach in Germany. If you don't know the festival yet,
here you'll find a first impression video:

If you have an idea for an one hour hands-on workshop, for an
action/installation, for a stage talk/panel or for a potential keynote
speaker, please let me know.

A few words about me: I'm newly in charge of the makerspace at re:publica,
coordinating a content team to create the programme and managing our
partnerships. I was programme director at re:publica from 2012-2017, and
since 2018 take care of a few special and emerging projects.

Since January 2018 I am project lead at the non-profit Global Innovation
Gathering for the Careables/Made4You EU Horizon project, the Open Hardware
platform for everything health+care. So I guess there will be a few
synergies given also the overlap in project partners :)

In my non-work-life I help a 2-year-old discover the world and try to find
the time to volunteer with “European Digital Rights” (EDRi) where I'm an
observer since 2011. You can usually meet me at events like Chaos
Communication Congress, in a video call or on playgrounds in Berlin.

+++ And here the full text for the re:publica CfP that you can also forward
to anyone who you think would be interested +++

It's time again! *The Call for Participation (CfP) for the 13th re:publica

potential solutions together.

re:publica is more than just a conference: there are exciting lectures and
panels, practical workshops, art installations, a maker space as well as an
evening and party programme - this makes re:publica a true *festival for
