Creative Bureaucracy Festival

On 2 June the Creative Bureaucracy Festival will take place in Berlin. The festival is starting the new year with an expanded programme. In addition to a welcoming address by Wolfgang Schmidt, the head of the German Federal Chancellery, the organisers are expecting many other creative minds to attend.

The festival's main stage will host several keynotes, specialist lectures and project presentations on a variety of themes, from accelerating climate action and decolonising international development, to rethinking organisational structures and cross-sector relationships, designing for scale, and to nurturing responsible leadership. The mainstage will be streamed on this website for everyone around the globe.

The festival will offer seminars where participants will learn about a specific key topic within a 50-minutes format, diving into detail through examples from practice. Each seminar will offer practice-related input and share knowledge or other types of toolkits or methods as takeaways. The fishbowl conversations will offer 50-minutes discussions and dialogues, encouraging active participation from a wider set of participants in larger group exchanges.

The Creative Bureaucracy Festival celebrates outstanding innovation in the public sector and its contribution to a better, more sustainable, and more just world. It brings together bureaucrats and their allies – those who, at all levels of government, fight for the common good and make a difference.
