How you can be part of the BDF Conference programme.

Speaking at BDF conference

Due to the limited number of speaker slots at the conference, we invite our speakers individually based on how well they fit with our theme and programme.

A full call for entries will happen as normal for our festival in 2024.

Hosting an event or workshop

Much like speaking at BDF, workshop hosts for BDF 2023 have been invited, there are not any opportunities to submit an application this year.

A full call for entries will happen as normal for our festival in 2024.


Who can volunteer?

This year our volunteer team will be reduced and we do not currently require any additional applications for volunteers at this time.

A full volunteer roster will be in place for our festival in 2024, with applications opening at the start of the year.
