About the Festival

For the 11th time MitOst, its members and everyone being interested in cultural and social and civic exchange in Europe and its neighbouring regions meet at the International MitOst-Festival.

Since 2003, the festival has been taken place annually, every time in a different city, see here where. This year, Leipzig will host the MitOst Festival 2013.

The Festival is the highlight of the MitOst year. All the organisation's diversity, the member's commitment and their enthusiasm becomes visible.

About 200 participants will make an acquaintance with the city and its inhabitants. They will present their voluntary projects, hold actions and mini projects, offer workshops and get networked. There will also be a lot of space for self-organised, lively and intercultural cooperation. A general programme of film presentations, exhibitions, discussions, readings, city tours and concerts will bring the spirit of MitOst into the city as well as it will unite MitOst members, partner organisations and local inhabitants.

The current programme you can find on our festival blog.
