In 2015, Baton Rouge will celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the Red Stick Festival as a hub for ideas, information, innovation and inspiration. For a glorious week in May the halls, galleries, theaters and spaces of Baton Rouge will transform into the Red Stick FutureFest.

Open Source Festival
The Red Stick FutureFest is an open source festival: a Louisiana festival built from the contributions of those whose interests and passions are at the point where technology & society meet. Red Stick as an organization will provide guidelines, some resources and scheduling support for the events/workshops etc., but each individual event will be the responsibility of the sponsor. The Red Stick organization is responsible for organizing the Gala events, handling the overall schedule and integration of events, as well as providing logo and other press support.
This is an open call offering you the chance to be part of the 2015 Red Stick Festival, which will run from May 28-31, 2015. This call is open to anyone – individuals, groups or organizations – with innovative ideas and a passion for communicating them.

What are we looking for?
We are looking for Individuals, companies, labs, businesses and organizations to host events and programs that celebrate Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math, or STEAM, at the festival. Submit exhibits, performances, lectures, activities for families, tours, debates, workshops or creative new ideas we’ve never imagined. From fabulous events that enthrall people of all ages to inspiring presentations, fascinating workshops to thought-provoking conversations, interactive events/performances to exhibitions that bring technology to life for a wide range of audiences; the future is up to you.
