If I come to the festival with my friends/colleagues, will I be able to share the room with them?
Yes, you can surely do that. We have rooms available on triple and quad sharing basis. A group of up to four people can stay together. However, intimate us about the same in advance.
When will the speakers and panelists for the event get announced?
While we have already given out the glimpse of the lineup on our website, you can expect us to announce details of programming by the 1st week of May. We’ve got a lot of surprises in store for you. Stay tuned!
Since it’ll be mid summers, carry sun screens, caps and water bottles with you. We’re trying to keep this one an eco-sensitive event, so, to reduce plastic waste, we’d request you to not carry plastic water bottles. For refilling, mineral water will be available at the venue. Also, since the venue is in the midst of the forest, carry mosquito repellents.
Are there any special grants?
There is no process to apply for grants.
Is there a refund policy?
Once we accept your application and you confirm the same by paying the amount, refund is not available.
Why is the festival participation by invite only?
The key idea behind keeping the festival a curated one is to create an intimate co-learning environment, enabling applicants to meet like-minded people, who learn from each other and offer diverse perspectives.
What are the pick up spots and timings for the shuttle bus that’ll take me from the Dehradun Airport/Railway Station to the event venue?
Once you pay for the festival and share the receipt with us, book yourself on a morning flight/train to Dehradun. We’ll have shuttle buses stationed at Dehradun Airport and Railway Station departing at 12 pm and 2 pm. Anyone reaching Dehradun beyond 2 pm will require to make their own arrangements to reach the venue.
