The Team

To assemble and coordinate such a diverse, international lineup of thinkers, creators and visionaries is not easy and needs a good team – ideally as multifaceted and colourful as the congress itself.

Included are (in arbitrary order): Alicia Holthausen, doctorand in art history, who has been project manager of the Open Source Festival for more than eight years and is particularly looking forward to a congress in a very unusual surrounding. Steffen Dietz, multidisciplinary creative and freelance creative director, who already finds the variety of topics of the first Open Source Festival Congress (OSFC) stunning. Philipp Maiburg, founder and artistic director of the Open Source Festival, for whom a dream has come true with the upcoming congress. Katharina Sussek and Jens Müller from the design studio ZWEIUEINS, for whom innovative solutions cannot go far enough – no matter in which discipline. And last but not least, Katrin Petry, certified media manager, former project manager for the art.fair in cologne, today CEO of ZackBumm GmbH, who is particularly looking forward to a congress where visitors will not only be sprinkled, but will also participate actively and contribute their part to a creative and innovative congress day.
