Open Source Festival

The Red Stick FutureFest is an open source festival: a Louisiana festival built from the contributions of those whose interests and passions are at the point where technology & society meet.  Red Stick as an organization will provide guidelines, some resources and scheduling support for the events/workshops etc, but each individual event will be the responsibility of the sponsor.  The Red Stick organization is responsible for organizing the Gala events, handling the overall schedule and integration of events, as well as providing logo and other press support.

This is an open call offering you the chance to be part of the 2015 Red Stick Festival, which will run from May 28th-31st 2015. This call is open to anyone – individuals, groups or organizations – with innovative ideas and a passion for communicating them.
What are we looking for?
We are looking for Individuals, companies, labs, businesses and organizations to host events and programs that celebrate Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEAM) at the festival.
