The first MEETING BRNO festival took place in May 2016, building upon the Rok smíření/Year of Reconciliation of 2015. The project recalled the end of WW II in a broader context, paying homage also to the victims of the nazi terror and the expulsion of German-speaking population in 1945. The reception of the year-long program of cultural events made us further explore the questions arising from Brno's multicultural past, broading our focus by present topics. In 2016 we thus concentrated on migration, on losing and finding home respectively.The current year of the festival will focus on the unity of Europe being jepardized by populism and radicalisation of our societies.
MEETING BRNO takes place every year in late May and offers a platform for people of different views, cultures and religions to meet eachother. The program of the festival consists of readings, theater and music, visual arts, performances in public space and discission forums with inspiring people.
