The Dialogue Team will in advance of the festival travel do research regarding conflicts and choose three main areas.

The Workshop Team

The workshops are one of the most important components of ISFiT. The 500 participants are spread over 20 different workshops running in parallel over 6 days throughout the festival. The workshops are primarily a platform for the participants to discuss important issue, ideas, experiences and passions that are related to the theme. Moreover, it is a means for the participants and volunteers to make lifelong friendships. The success of the workshops is what keeps the participants coming back each year, hence the Workshop Team has the ability to directly influence the outcome of the festival.

These are the positions in the Workshop Team:

  • Assistant Head of Workshop
