Open Call for Participation - WK Exhibition

Get involved and submit your project for the Waterkant Exhibition 2022 - find out more here!

__we & you__ that's how we want to think about the Waterkant exhibition this year: together with you. That's why this year, for the first time, you have the opportunity to respond to the Open Call for Participation with a project and become part of the Waterkant Exhibition, which will be open on the Waterkant Festival grounds from June to September 2022. Join us and make yourself visible to our community of up to 2000 people from startups, companies, organisations and politics!

The exhibition
Since 2020, the Waterkant exhibition has brought together innovative projects and start-ups from Schleswig-Holstein and beyond on the festival grounds to present the innovative spirit of the North to a broad audience. In 2022, we will enter the 3rd round. It is this spirit that offers concrete answers and solutions to the challenges of our time and that we want to make visible - no matter how far your project has already developed.

„How might we...“ & “What if ...”
Thematically, there are no limits to your submission for the Waterkant exhibition. To give the exhibition a common thread, your project should be framed in one of the two questions 'How might we...' or 'What if ...'. We see these two questions as both ambitious and inspiring. They are meant to encourage visitors to use their imagination and at the same time to show concrete possibilities for action through your projects.

It is not only important to have the best solution, but to ask the crucial questions. What if ... you trigger change?

Deadline for submissions is 14th April 2022. More infos here.
