The Decidim project presents a new and ambitious adventure: the Decidim Fest. From the 29th to the 31st of October, Fabra i Coats will host the first edition of this festival and global meeting of Decidim.

After 3 editions of the Jam (Annual Seminars Metadecidim) and consequently with the constant desire for continuity and improvement of the Decidim project, Decidim Fest is born with a more global vision and the desire to further enhance the exchange of knowledge, networking and the debate among the members of the community and local and international agents that work for a stronger democracy . With the title “Democracy, technology and future” this first edition invites us to reflect on the relationships between technology and the challenges of democracy in our networked society.

The full program of the festival is now available for consultation, which will be completely open and free with pre-registration. It will be inaugurated on Wednesday October 29 with an Open Assembly of the association, followed during the 30th and 31st October of a very comprehensive program of presentations, debates, workshops and facilities on the threats of the access and the capitalism of surveillance, the rise of digital far-right, the power of cyberfeminism and network sorority, the wealth of free software and open knowledge, the promise of the democratization of platforms, data, and artificial intelligence, the reality of participation in multiple cities, and the centrality of the Decidim as an infrastructure and technopolitical project from which to think and intervene in all these fronts of struggle in the network society.

DecidimFest will take place in Barcelona from the 29th to the 31st of October.
