In two weeks, on Friday Oct. 24 and Saturday Oct. 25, the second edition of Uncharted: The Berkeley Festival of Ideas, will throw open its doors in downtown Berkeley. It’s going to be a an extraordinary two days of conversations on food, technology, arts, innovation, society, environment, politics, and much, much more.

Berkeleyside is producing Uncharted and is committed to having an engaged, active group of participants attend — people like our readers who are curious, opinionated, and hungry for knowledge and new ways of thinking. That is why we are offering a limited number of scholarships to ensure the diversity of the audience.

Scholarships are intended for people who can contribute substantively to the discussions during Uncharted, but would otherwise be unable to attend.

To apply for a scholarship — which will give you a full pass to the festival, including all sessions and the Uncharted party at the University Club at Memorial Stadium — complete this simple web form. We just want to know why you’re interested in Uncharted, your thoughts on how you can contribute to the festival and what you’ll bring to the conversations. The deadline is Monday Oct. 20.

Other Berkeleysiders who haven’t bought their tickets yet can do so at BerkeleyIdeas.com  

Details of the program are on the Uncharted website, where you can also see the full roster of speakers and watch a 1-minute video about the festival.
