There are not any specific requirements. To be qualified, you just need to confirm you have the necessary competencies and motivation to organize the discussion event in your city and you have the necessary means to find financial support to organize it.
We expect you to organize one festival discussion (yourself or with any partner) and organize the discussion hub with at least 50 participants.
It is okay if your team changes. We ask you to find replacements and give over any information of the organizing process. Our festival team will help you onboard your new members as well.
We are currently in the process of finding partners. By now, our partners for organizing the HEDF discussions and any pre-events are LSA, NGO Arvamusfestival, Üliõpilaskonna Sihtasutus, Tartu 2024 Foundation.
The Estonian city of Tartu is the European Capital of Culture in the year of 2024. Read more about it here. HEDF is one of the many projects which is a part of the main program of the Tartu 2024 program.
