EUnderground Festival

Project "EUnderground" wants to bring the history closer to young citizens with a very unique topic which has received less attention so far. The project reveals a hidden and less accessible cultural heritage of former socialist countries: the field of underground cultural movements in Eastern- and Central-Europe between 1948-89.

EUnderground Festival
The project title refers to the alternative cultural movements at that time as very important means of cultural opposition of the civil society in the Eastern block. The project's scientific, cultural and non-formal educational activities about counterculture helps significantly the acquaintance of the era, which creates a better understanding the importance of free speech and civil dialogue in a democracy. We show different forms of cultural protesting against the repression of the freedom of thought and conscience through censorship, and accent the contrast between the dictatorship of the party state and the democratic system of the EU nowadays.

Wardrobe Fair
Wardrobe Fair

Do you have your wardrobe full of clothes you don't like, don't fit you or you never wear anymore?We suppose we all have many unworn pieces that for some reason we don't feel like throwing away as we think that they are worth more. We really had no idea what to do with those clothes as long as we came up with the idea of a marketplace, where we all have the opportunity to sell these pieces.
