8th GO Group workshop in Prague on April 1 & 2

We are happy to once again present our interactive, open and communicative format known as the „GO Group workshop“ with international guests from all over Europe.

We are looking forward to meet you in the czech capital in spring, because we want to talk about today and tomorrow. Let‘s discuss how we run our operations smarter and how we treat the environment and ourselves more responsible and more sustainable. Like no other institution our pan-european think-tank brought together hundreds of festivals, scientists, initiatives and suppliers involved in festival and event organisation to foster exchange on an international basis. Time for the next chapter:

It’s time for the 8th international GO Group workshop in Prague.

We kindly invite you to this 2-day seminar on April 1 and 2 2019 in the heart of the czech capital at Skautsky Institute (Prague Creative Center) on Old Town Square.
The GO GROUP workshop is an event by GO GROUP in assoiation with Yourope – The European Festival Association. The workshop in Prague is kindly hosted by Nouvelle Prague and SoundCzech.

We are currently finalizing an exciting mix of presentations, case studies, talks, creative workshops, roundtable discussions and networking events on both days. We are looking forward to speakers from major events and initiatives as well as innovative experts. The 8th GO Group workshop for sustainable festivals and events will focus on these two topics:

Day 1, Mon 1 April 2019, 10h – 18h
Main topic: „Festivals of the future – innovation & mindset“
Making a huge impact with a low impact on the planet: this is how the future is being built. To do so you need knowledge, technology and the will to experiment and step on new paths. We will shine a light on the progress of smart systems, modules and solutions. We will hear about several projects concerning different production areas and work on a future-fit mindset to create ideas and measures to be implemented at the festivals and events of the future. Sessions include:

  • „Here we GO! Czech it out!“
  • Keynote „Into the future with arts and events“
  • „Rethink ressources“ – innovation & mindset
  • „The energy revolution“ – innovation & mindset
  • Let It Roll Festival case study
  • Building the future – creative group workshop
  • more to be added soon

Day 2, Tue 2 April 2019, 9h – 16.30h
Main topic: „Work, Life & Us“
While we make incredible efforts to professionalize and improve our events on various levels such as safety and sustainability and please our customers and fans, so much so that we are very likely to forget ourselves on this journey. We continue talking about this – because there are too many issues that are icredibly important for every one personally as well as for our (working) relationships and our events as well. That‘s why this session is devoted to us. A full day about experiences, expectations and awareness. Let‘s learn about stress and pressure, about smart and contemporary approaches on working conditions, accessibility, motivation and appreciation. Sessions include:

  • “Stress – your worst best friend”
  • „If what you love most is in your way“
  • „The Good life academy“ workshop
  • more to be added soon
