The Feira @ the Global Gathering (“Fair” in Portuguese) will be a 3-day social and networking festival for digital rights defenders, hosted in an idyllic outdoor space in Estoril, Portugal. Make sure to apply before April 7, 2023.

The Feira is designed to provide digital rights defenders (DRDs) with a rejuvenating space to reconnect, relax and host informal meetups and discussions, along with sun, food, music, local vendors, select project booths and other fun activities (did someone say karaoke?!). If you are interested in joining the Feira, this year your focus should be on networking and recharging your batteries with your colleagues.

Who Can Apply?

Anyone can apply. However, your application will go through a verification and approval process. If your application is approved, you will be contacted no more than three weeks from the date of your submission.

The Feira will have an unstructured format, offering space and limited coordination support for individuals to meet and self-organize. Some of the self-organized events will take place in the venue, and others will take place in the beautiful city of Estoril. You will be greeted with many facilities that allow you to sit together, enjoy the sun, and network / socialize. This includes numerous picnic tables, food vendors, and fun activities.
