Who are we?
We are an independent group of scientists, creatives and cultural professionals who think that science is too important to be left to scientists alone and want to contribute their part to change the way we do and think science: open, collaborative and interdisciplinary. For this, we founded STATE Festival Foundation gGmbH, a privately owned and independent non-profit company based in Berlin, which is the legal entity behind the festival. STATE Festival could not be realized without the close interaction and support from a large network of national and international institutions, people and companies–inside and outside the academic world–to which we owe our utmost gratitude.
The festival program team in 2016 is:
DR. CHRISTIAN RAUCH (DIRECTOR)
DANIELA SILVESTRIN (ARTS&SCIENCE)
PABLO ROJAS (SCIENCE&RESEARCH)
VENA WARD (FILM)
MICHAEL MITCHELL (COMMUNICATION&STRATEGY)
