Frequently Asked Questions

What is ORGCon? 
ORGCon is the UK's biggest digital rights event. High profile writers, speakers and activists give their insights into the big issues affecting civil liberties and the Internet. It's also a place for ORG members, activists and anyone who is interested in human rights and technology to come together to paticipate in great discussions and sessions. 

What can I expect?
ORGCon is where friendships are forged, where we all learn from each other and amazing conversations are had about how we can all make the Internet and the world a better place.

Where can I buy tickets? 
You can either register on the ticketing page, or at the bottom of the ORGCon home page. The standard ticket price is £40. There are discounted tickets for ORG members (those who give a regular donation to ORG), and free tickets are available to new members who sign up during the next two months. 

Will there be food and refreshments?
There is a cafe serving teas, coffees and food. You can also bring your own snacks and water. There are many other cafes and restaurants near Friends House.

What is the access like? 
Full details on accessibility are on the Friends House Website. Information about access to buses, tubes, rail links and taxis is available from www.tfl.gov.uk/gettingaround/transportaccessibility/1167.aspx.

How can I buy a ticket for Day 1 and 2?
Choose a Weekend ticket, which you can use for Day 1 and Day 2.  Please note, each day is held at a different location!

I only bought a Day 1 ticket, can I still get a ticket for Day 2?
Yes, but the easiest way for us to do this is if you email supporters@openrightsgroup.org to let us know and we'll sort it out with you. 

Is there a safe-space policy?
Open Rights Group is dedicated to creating an environment at ORGCon where people with an interest in digital rights can come together, learn from each other, and contribute their skills, ideas and energy. All attendees agree to abide by the anti-harassment policy. We reserve the right to refuse entry.
