MitOst Festival Athens
The International MitOst Festival is a meeting point for all those who are interested in cultural and civic exchange in Europe and its neighbouring regions. It brings together thinkers and activists, experts and newcomers. A diverse programme with more than 80 events provides space for networking, learning, reflection and inspiration. Since its premier in the Hungarian city Pécs in 2003, the festival has been migrated through Europe and taken place every year in another city.
The festival creates a third space, where peaceful exchange, reflexion, learning and co-creation are possible. The four day programme usually consists of about 80 overlapping events: discussions, lectures, workshops, presentations, working groups and vivid cultural offers ranging from film screenings and exhibitions to music concerts and performances.
I was invited to present my work on creative use of empty spaces under the section of Alternative forms of economy for culture.
