It is time to say thank you. A big thank you for all the contributions that created a diverse, ambitious and interesting programme, for which we got a lot of positive feedback and which we enjoyed a lot ourselves. We also want to thank you warmly for your helping hands that assured a smooth Festival. Thank you as well for your active participation, for interesting discussions and opinions that enriched the Festival very much.

Many, many thanks also go to the local community and our dear local hosts Communitism and COMM'ON. You all made this Festival happen together and created this common and safe space for our community.

We hope that sharing funny dance moves to Aretha Franklin’s „Freedom“ and a Greek dish from edible plates, many hugs and filakia (Greek for kisses), the mellow Athenian evening breeze and hot party nights, joyful chatter over coffee and deep and meaningful conversation sitting on colourful upcycled chairs under the Greek sun are fond memories that you take home with you to warm your hearts, but also to inspire and re-energise you for being active in your local communities all over Europe and beyond.

It was great to see you again or to get to know you for the first time. We really hope that you enjoyed this year’s Festival in terms of content, culture, interpersonal, culinary and in any other way and got a lot of new impressions.

We hope to see you next year…
We had a great time with you and are already thinking about the next MitOst Festival. As announced already during this year’s Festival, the 17th International MitOst Festival will take place in Budapest, Hungary. The preparations will take off by November. Those of you, who already have ideas, contacts or suggestions for us, please get in touch with the team via e-mail: festival(at) We are looking forward to seeing you next year!
