Why is fofx needed?

First of all, we ourselves wished fofx existed - a space where we could exchange perspectives, find collaborators and grow our creative journeys. Second, in a country of a billion people, we don’t have one big creative festival that brings everyone together. That’s not cool!

Plus with our 5-years experience in creating interventions for creators and enabling collaborations we have realised the infinite potential in bringing creators together.

Do I need to be a creator to get an invite?

Short answer, no.

fofx is a space for anyone who wants to stay creative, start a creative business or grow their creative journey. It’s for the ones who are creators but also for the ones that are just getting started or the corporate misfits and ex-creators who lost touch with that side of their lives.

The programming of the festival ensures value for everyone.

Are we sustainable/eco-sensitive?

fofx is designed a with sustainability-first mindset. We are aware and conscious about the venue of the festival. The festival will be produced in the most eco-friendly way possible and will follow all the environmental guidelines in the area in partnership with the resort.

Will I get time to sleep?

Good one! Unlike other conferences, fofx is a residential festival - which means everyone stays together and lives together. The sessions will run till 10pm every night and post that you are free to carry on the conversations through the night or go crash. No Pressure.

Can I showcase my work at the festival?

Yes, creators attending the festival can also present/showcase their work at the open mics on one of the days or get a physical space to showcase their creative business/projects. For the latter, write to us at hello@theex.co.

Is fofx a safe space for attendees?

Absolutely! fofx is a festival for creators to jam and grow; creating a safe space where ideas can flow organically, conversations are effortless is very important. Apart from designated areas for the attendees, the festival will have security, a 24-hour dedicated team for any safety-related issues. You will always have someone you could speak to nearby.

Why is the festival invite-only?

With curation, the aim of the festival is to bring the best intentions to the festival. Creating a vibe tribe and a positive energy also comes from the same intention. Moreover, it’s a conscious decision to keep the festival small and cozy so everyone gets time to get to know their fellow creators better.

Can I get a grant to attend the festival?

The festival will send grants/invites to limited applicants only depending on their application. Follow us on Instagram for getting updates. The decision would solely be made by the curators looking at the applications. So go ahead and apply for the festival now!
