Frequently Asked Questions

March 4th, 2022.  But if you want to get technical about it - it depends where you are in the world.  WordFest Live is a 24-hour event, which will cover multiple timezones.

Of course, the event is virtual, so you can join us at any time and in any location.  How fun is that!

All over the world, all at the same time.  WordFest Live is omnipresent!  This just gets better.

So to join the festival, you’ll need to register, we’ll then send you a magical link that will let you jump on board our global festival via the interwebs.  

On a slightly more practical note; WordFest Live is an online festival and will take place right here, at WordFest.Live!

About 4-24 hours of your life.  You won’t have to hand over any of your hard-earned cash though.  Tickets are free!

There is an optional $10 donation that can be made when registering.  We’d be over the moon if you selected this option, it will help us continue to provide free wellbeing and mental health support in remote work communities.  But it isn't necessary to do so, to claim your ticket.

Nope, because there’s nothing to refund.  Tickets are 100% free.  

An optional donation can be made to Big Orange Heart when you select your ticket but the tickets themselves are free, zero, nothing, not-a-one!  Cha-ching!

Yes, 100% without a doubt, please do! 

If you have something to share with the community, we want to know about it. You can apply right here on the website. Although we won't be able to accept all applications (due to a limited number of sessions) we want to hear your ideas! You can apply under the Open Calls tab at the top of this page.

We want to ensure there is representation from each of the continents we’ll be delivering WordFest Live from, so please hit that speaker registration as soon as it's live.

You know how this goes… hand your marketing budget, we’ll throw up a logo.

No, no, no, no.  We can not stand this model.  We recognise times are different and so we’ve developed a truly social experience for our attendees.  We want to see how we can partner with you to keep building on this best experience, for all involved.  

If you want to join us as a partner of WordFest Live, we’re very open to ideas and discussions.  We have to ensure this is mutually beneficial for you, the attendees and us the charity. 

We love WordCamp!  We’re a team of WordCamp organisers.  We wholeheartedly support and encourage WordCamp.  But we’re delivering this event, in part, to raise awareness as well as funds for Big Orange Heart (BOH).  BOH is a registered non-profit with a mission to support and promote positive wellbeing and mental health within remote working communities.  

WordCamps do not permit fundraising for specific charitable organisations and as such we are delivering this event independently.

100% of your donations will go directly to Big Orange Heart.  This will enable the continued growth of free well-being and mental health support for the remote working community.  If you’re interested to know more about how funds are used, please see https://big.ht/open.
