A little video in english & french with lars explaining the guerilla conferencing idea

How does guerilla conferencing work? A guerilla conference has a theme, a date and a fixed place. Openit is on openness, ecology & economy. It will take place in Berlin Kreuzberg around Moritzplatz (Makerplatz ☺) and Oranienplatz from September 26 to September 29 2013. During these days the area will be entered and hacked peacefully.

The precise program of a guerilla conference or guerilla fair remains open. Everybody can contribute something, there is no curation. Everything happens decentralized. If you want to contribute, you simply pick a place in the Openit area, set a time for your contribution and add it to the open calender.

The contributors organize everything for their ideas themselves. But people help each other with resources, stuff, knowledge and work by using the resources page. You need some help with something? Make a request there. You can help with something? Offer your resources, some of your time, your knowledge. Give people a hand.

Openit Map

The area of the Openit Festival is very rich in interesting institutions and structures. There are beautiful parks and places, quiet streets, many creative places like the Betahaus, the Prinzessinnengarten, the Aufbauhaus, a farm, artist's workshops, bars, clubs, galleries etc. (Open List here). Ask for help there. Maybe someone will allow you to plug something into their outlets for some hours, give you a roof, water or whatever you need for your Openit contribution. The Openit Festival is about reorganizing the city in an ecological way, to experiment with it's ecological and collaborative reinvention. Bring in what is there! 

All of this happens peacefully. There are only two rules:
(1) "Do not offend the people who live and work there, listen to and take care of them."
(2) "Clean up, when you leave." Lets do some ecological city hacking!
