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).

[…} With warm weather, a friendly crowd and a relaxed atmosphere, it’s easy to see why Reworks remains a beacon of stability.”

Oscar nominated Hauschka to perform at Reworks Agora

A true pioneer on a musical instrument can be the one who gives new dimensions in it’s sound and new ways to interpret reaching the edges of his creativity.

Haushcka calls himself a “sound explorer” and he is right. Volker Bertelmann a.k.a. Hauschka, is clearly a man who knows his instrument – quite literally – inside out, and he’s as unafraid of approaching it with a fresh sensibility as he is capable of drawing upon an unusually broad church of influences.

Almost two decades after he began his professional career rapping, Volker Bertelmann aka HAUSCHKA finds himself in the unusual position of being regularly compared to the likes of Eric Satie, John Cage and Steve Reich.

Always unpredictable, HAUSCHKA continues to offer only one certainty: that the next step he takes will no doubt be as unexpected as the direction from which he has come.

We will all have the chance to listen to his work during his unique appearance in Reworks Agora in September 2017.

His last album, “What If” was released during 2017 and is overflowing with haunting melodies, mysterious sounds and complex patterns. Listen to the song “Familiar Things Disappear”:

The pre-sale for Reworks Agora is on:

Access to all discussions and screenings – 10 euros / 5 euros students/unemployment card.

Access to all dsicussions, screenings and Hauschka’s concert – 20 euros.

Reworks Festival among the best festivals in the world

Beehype published a list of the best festivals around the world, that will to stand out during the summer period for their music completeness and quality, as well as the thousands of visitors that are expected to attract. Reworks was one of them.
Beehype reported:

“After an intense brainstorming session among beehype contributors around the world, we have selected some of the best festivals that we are aware of that happen in the third quarter of the year (July, August and September).

You’ll find events of all kinds and sizes, but as always – what we appreciate most is the attention paid to local/regional music talents who remain outside the global circuit.

With over 900 artists who have played at the festival to date, it’s the biggest and most interesting music festival of North Greece since 2005.

It brings together contemporary culture and forward thinking music in an urban environment, presenting a broad spectrum of – mainly – electronic music. From house & techno to freestyle, neo-classical & jazz to disco, this year’s artists will be presented on 3 outdoor and 9 indoor stages.”

Reworks Festival 2017 presents Resound/Echos of Thessaloniki

What kind of a story do the sounds of a city tell about the city itself? To what extend the citizens of Thessaloniki have linked it with specific natural sounds? If Thessaloniki had a soundtrack how would that sound like?

Reworks Festival presents Resound/Echos of Thessaloniki a brand-new ambitious project supported by Thessaloniki Tourism Organization. Its aim is the creation of a soundtrack for the city based on natural sounds found on various spots around its urban landscape. Reworks announces an open call for music producers and musicians from Greece and abroad to a music dialogue. How? Through Resound/Echos of Thessaloniki!

The White Tower, the seafront of Thessaloniki, the Byzantine walls, Kapani market and Modiano market are some of the spots that will offer the first musical material to Resound/Echos of Τhessaloniki. Natural sounds of those spots have been recorded by Tends transmitting the atmosphere of the place and are available online. Through the creative direction of Cayetano, Larry Gus, Tendts, and Ison, artists from all over Greece and abroad will re-create the sound of Thessaloniki.
