After hitting some new records in 2021 with its second digital edition, the Creative Bureaucracy Festival will return in 2022 with the best of both worlds – Save the Date for the Digital Kick-Off Day on 24 March and the Creative Bureaucracy Festival live event in Berlin on 2 June 2022!

The year 2022 will offer even more opportunities and room for Creative Bureaucrats and their ideas. Creative Bureaucracy Festival is kicking off a new year celebrating public sector innovations on 24 March with a free online event available across the globe. The day will host several programme slots showcasing the most forward-thinking projects and offering an opportunity for the global Creative Bureaucracy community to reconnect.

Then on 2 June the Creative Bureaucracy Festival will return with an in-person event in 2022! In the heart of Berlin one day will be dedicated to the most creative minds and initiatives in the public sector. One day of knowledge, exchange, networking and celebration.

Creative Bureaucracy Festival is working on full speed to create a great programme for you. Call for Participation has now been closed and the Creative Bureaucracy Festival Jury 2022 will now get to work to bring all of us an inspiring selection of sessions!

More information on what you can expect and how to take part will follow soon.


The Creative Bureaucracy Festival celebrates outstanding innovation in the public sector and its contribution to a better, more sustainable, and more just world. It brings together bureaucrats and their allies – those who, at all levels of government, fight for the common good and make a difference.
