Scholarships

We are happy to announce that we are providing full & partial scholarships for AltShift 2024. However, we want to do it a bit differently this year.

We want this festival to be an accessible and safe space for all those who wish to join us in building alliances for a radical degrowth movement. We need you - all of you, with your quirks, crazy haircuts, different abilities and dog-eared niche paperbacks.

We offer reduced ticket prices to accommodate accessibility needs through a sliding scale. This tool allows people to access the AltShift at varying prices, acknowledging that financial resources, including income, should not dictate access to services or care.

For the sliding scale to work, it relies on honesty, responsibility and accountability. We won’t ask you for proof of income - we trust you to be truthful and aware of your needs. Regardless, we want to remind you that there’s a limited amount of reduced tickets, and choosing to take them if you can afford the full price will stop other people from accessing the festival.

For visualizing purposes and to get you to reflect on your purchasing power, we are using the green bottle system.

*Basic Needs include food, housing, health care, and transportation.

*Expendable Income might mean you can buy coffee or tea at a shop, go to the movies or a concert, buy new clothes, books, and similar items each month, etc.

Reach out to us (altshift. festival[at]tutanota. com) if you would like to get a full or partial scholarship, and we can discuss the ticket reduction that suits your needs.
