The 2017 edition of the OpenMind festival is canceled

It is with a heart full of emotion that we must announce that the 2017 edition of the OpenMind festival will not take place.

Over the past eight months, we have experienced a incredible process in which we have rebuilt the very roots of the way we organize events, placing humans at the center, in all its facets! How transformative was this process, both on the human and organizational level.

We have given way to this human and organizational process, and we have respected the pace of this process with confidence. It is with this confidence that we announce this news today, because we feel and know that what was rebuilt during these months is a solid human and renewed base. It is a real springboard for future OpenMind projects!

We made this decision after receiving unexpected news about the new land that was to host the festival, and also following the departure of some key members of the organization. It is not easy for us to accept the direction of the process and to grieve, but we know that it is for the best of ourselves and the OpenMind community because we are committed to preserving this new human culture, present and attentive throughout the process, so that the festival is an accomplished achievement and a source of vibrant, living, human and balanced inspiration.

The good news is that it puts back energy in the various OpenMind projects!

It is time to bring the community around the organization and include it in this process we are living. Our next event is OneMind, on April 7th: a golden opportunity to finally meet again in an OpenMind context, both very festive and well-centered.

Love for all of us beautiful OpenMind community!

Meals being strong unifying moments; meal times and the quality of the kitchens is a priority for the OpenMind Festival 2015.

L’Attribut – cuisine responsable – is proud to join the OpenMind team in order to bring people together with its bountiful cuisine.

L’Attribut is a convergence of professionals and valiant volunteers who meet in harmony to co-create a delightful and inspiring menu. The meals will bring flavors from around the world and will be prepared mainly with local and organic ingredients by a dynamic and passionate team!

In order to cater to the values and needs of the community in its diversity, we have opted for vegetarian menus, with gluten-free and vegan options.

The OpenMind kitchen and other kiosks of the Food Court will give you access to a diversity of inspiring ways to nourish and sustain the whole community during the festival. Alimentary health and hygiene will be promoted to ensure that your experience will be unforgettable.

The service areas of the Food Court will be at the heart of the community and the festival-goers will be invited to joyfully participate in this circle where body and spirit are nourished.
