We are happy to announce our collaboration with re:publica Thessaloniki. Together, we will be co-curating a panel and offering you the chance to attend both conferences with a specially priced combo ticket.

Originally from Berlin, re:publica began in 2007 as a cosy blogger gathering and has since grown into the most exciting, wide-ranging society conference about the internet and digital culture in Europe. It brings people together from all over the world to discuss issues concerning the contemporary digital society. Bloggers meet with politicians, scientists with entrepreneurs, artists with activists.

In 2016, re:publica took its concept abroad for the first time – and successfully at that: More than 200 people turned up for re:publica Dublin. And this year re:publica will be heading to Thessaloniki for the first time! The Greek offshoot of the Berlin community conference will take place from 11 to 13 September. Following the second re:publica Dublin (7-8 September), the #rp crew will head from Europe’s Northwest to the Southeast. In total, the week will include over 100 hours of programme content, including talks, workshops, activities and parties, which you can find listed here.

Reworks Agora is happy to welcome re:publica Thessaloniki on-board as we take on this year’s theme of “2030: What’s next?”, where we’ll be focusing on future scenarios for helping shape our rapidly changing world, exploring trends and identifying risks and opportunities for a sustainable future through culture. At the same time, we’ll be examining the possibilities inherent to Europe as part of re:publica’s mission this year to “re:connect EUROPE”.

Apart from our joint session, we are also very excited to offer our audience the chance to attend both conferences with a specially priced combo ticket which gives access to re:publica Thessaloniki (11-13 September) and Reworks Agora (incl. all panels, screenings and the Hauschka concert).
