OCTOBER 5-6, 2018
THE BERKELEY FESTIVAL OF IDEAS
Unscripted. Unpredictable. Uncharted.
BROUGHT TO YOU BY BERKELEYSIDE SINCE 2013.
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
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.
