Third MitOst Festival

Internationalism and exchange were, of course, also the leitmotifs of the third MitOst festival, which convened approximately 400 members from 21 countries in the Polish city of Wroclaw. They attended discussions, concerts, readings and film showings and an international workshop on project management: How does public relations work? How do you build teams? How do you raise funds for international projects?

A welcome opportunity for MitOst members to get to know each other, exchange experiences and make new contacts. In a symbolic place, because the souls of two cities live on in Wroclaw. For a long time, the Silesian city was called Breslau and a part of Germany, but the population largely had to leave between 1945 and 1947. After the Second World War, many inhabitants of Lvov (in today's Ukraine) were resettled to Wroclaw, which has been its official name since then. The different cultural influences define the city until today and played an important role in the cultural program of the MitOst festival.

Eine willkommene Gelegenheit für MitOst-Mitglieder, einander kennen zu lernen, Erfahrungen auszutauschen und neue Kontakte zu knüpfen. An einem symbolischen Ort, denn in Wroclaw leben die Seelen zweier Städte: Lange Zeit trug die schlesische Stadt den Namen Breslau und war deutsch geprägt, doch die Bevölkerung musste sie zwischen 1945 und 1947 weitgehend verlassen. Nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg wurden zugleich viele Einwohner von Lwów (heutige Ukraine) nach Breslau umgesiedelt, das seitdem offiziell Wroclaw heißt. Die unterschiedlichen kulturellen Einflüsse prägen die Stadt bis heute - und spielten auch eine wichtige Rolle im Kulturprogramm des MitOst-Festivals.
