Our mission is to connect and celebrate a global community of media makers, technologists and designers dedicated to working together and making a difference with their talents.
The Withfestival consists of globally oriented, yet locally embedded celebrations of purposeful work created at the confluence of media, technology and design. Festivals are organized at locations around the globe and throughout the year.
At each location, Withfestival showcases local storytelling, placemaking and innovation for a global audience. The occasions are marked by conviviality, exchange and collaboration. This is the spirit of the festival.
At WITH Festival we believe that the global community of media makers. designers and technologists can contribute significantly to social change. While social change organizations are focused on their various domains (education, public health, inequity etc.), very often these organizations are unable to effectively tell their stories to various audiences. This affects organization's ability to function optimally. Fundraising, client relations, reporting, motivating staff and volunteers - digital storytelling is an essential part occupying and succeeding in social change work.
WITH Festival exists to celebrate exemplary work created by media makers, designers and technologists (in any combination) to tell the stories of change. Apart from recognizing good work, we are dedicated to connecting social change organizations to dedicated and talented digital storytellers who can help.
