know about C-Tribe 2023

What the heck is C-Tribe?

We are a diversity-led collision gathering that brings together big thinkers, innovators, and creatives across various industries. Our aim is to help celebrate diversity and help innovative and creative people achieve their dreams.


We believe that a solid, innovation & creative hub is crucial for a city to develop, attract and retain people. It positively impacts the quality of life within cities, and it creates a vibrant urban culture that further establishes the region as a viable and globally competitive economy.


By way of positive growth through immersive experiences —showcases, music, food, panels, workshops, and special events — we will do our part to contribute to building an innovative and creative hub by breaking down silos and creating an inclusive environment that spurs enriched relationships and economic, social, and cultural prosperity.


Currently, C-Tribe operates across the verticals of tech, music, fashion, culture, and gaming.

When and where does C-Tribe take place?

Coming to the Northernmost Metropolis, Edmonton, AB, from August 17 -19, the C-Tribe x Tech Festival & Conference will be home of inspiring talks and keynotes, pitch competitions, networking and a one-of-a-kind cultural gathering. Visit the website for more details. 


We will announce the dates and locations for the full C-Tribe Festival experience in the coming weeks. Stay tuned.

// vision & values

We exist to celebrate diversity and to help innovative and creative people achieve their dreams.

We are manifesting our vision between the blurred lines of the physical and metaphysical worlds. We’re a community of misfits who aren’t afraid to fail. We aren’t afraid to push boundaries. We aren’t afraid to challenge the status quo. The world 100 years ago looked completely different than it does today and that will be the case for the next 100. We’re building C-Tribe to be at the forefront of web3 culture and to do that requires a whole new set of rules.


Take care of our people – our community comes first. Always. We pride ourselves on operating in underserved communities and being a platform for underestimated people. By standing up for them, they show out for us. This is our superpower.

Collisions, culture, connections, commerce – the future of community lives at the intersection of these four things. C-Tribe is uniquely positioned to explore and build on this.

Inspire and innovate –  By framing the way we want to change the world, we can experiment with new ideas and positively criticize the status quo. By developing inspiring things for our collective, anything is possible.
