MitOst Festival: Save the Date and Sneak Peek into the Programme

We are excited to share with you the date of the 18th International MitOst Festival!

We are excited to share the big news with you: The 18th International MitOst Festival will take place between November 16 - 22, 2020 online. As usual, the MitOst Members’ Assembly will be integrated into the festival and will take place on November 21.

Having an online festival allows us to stretch the event over an entire week with a peak from Friday to Sunday. The invitation and registration to the festival will follow later this summer.

As the offline MitOst Festival, also its online edition will become special and meaningful by the way how you as participants co-shape the event.

Therefore, together with the Moldovan team, we will provide a technical and structural framework and are planning a diverse mix of scheduled as well as on-demand content. All of this ensures that festival participants will be able to connect, share, learn, co-create and have fun together.

In interactive sessions, we will exchange on challenges and learnings related to the current crisis and make sense of the situation of civil societies in times of crises in general. We will explore how we can foster community to enhance solidarity and resilience.

We also want to open spaces to re-think our realities and prototype the future.

You can look forward to project-related co-creation that includes funding for projects and initiatives that emerge from the festival.

And of course, there will be joyful and light activities such as our classic tombola turned into digital fun and games especially to make you familiar with Moldova.

A special focus is on exchange and decision-making related to MitOst’s future. Agora and members' assembly will be weaved into the festival agenda and thus remain the core of the festival.

The festival teams from Moldova and Berlin look forward to our common digital festival journey!
