THE BERKELEY FESTIVAL OF IDEAS

Uncharted involves a two-day festival of ideas featuring a mix of conversations and ideas you’ll encounter nowhere else.

Unscripted. Unpredictable. Uncharted.

BROUGHT TO YOU BY BERKELEYSIDE SINCE 2013.

ABOUT UNCHARTED

Whether it’s Ayad Akhtar talking about identity, Allyson Hobbs and Andres Resendez exploring the power of history, or Charlie Warzel delving into deep fakes, you’ll find a mix of speakers and ideas at Uncharted unlike anywhere else.

Unscripted, unpredictable, uncharted.

Uncharted is co-curated by Lance Knobel and Helena Brantley. Lance, a founder of Berkeleyside, has curated Uncharted since its founding in 2013. Helena has been working with Uncharted since 2015.

Berkeleyside, the award-winning, independent local news website, founded Uncharted in 2013 in the belief that the most intriguing ideas — and solutions to today’s big challenges — emerge from the collision of different visions and perspectives.

About the festival

The two venues for Berkeleyside’s Uncharted Festival, the Berkeley Repertory Theatre and the Freight & Salvage Coffeehouse, are directly across the street from each other on Addison Street in downtown Berkeley.

Registration for both days of the festival — Friday Oct. 5 and Saturday Oct. 6 — is at the Freight, 2020 Addison St, Berkeley, CA 94704. Passes for those who have bought tickets can be picked up from 8am-4pm on Friday and from 8am-2pm on Saturday. Tickets also can be bought at the registration desk on both days.

The program runs each day from 9am to 5pm. Most of Uncharted runs in a single stream, so if you want to hear someone, you’re unlikely to find a conflict. The exceptions are the Uncharted Labs, small workshops for up to 60 festivalgoers. We’ll be announcing those in early September.

The Uncharted party on Friday evening is at the Alumni Club on the UC Berkeley campus — easy walking distance from the festival venues. All ticket holders, even if you’re Saturday-only, are welcome at the party.
