30th of June – 1st of July, Cēsis
The LAMPA conversation festival invites people to engage in conversations that lead to understanding. To diversity and its acceptance. To equality – where every opinion has the right to exist and be heard. To a desire to find out more and to take pleasure in doing so.
The LAMPA conversation festival celebrates democratic culture and provides an open, engaging and joyful environment for vigorous and enthralling conversations for everyone who cares about Latvia and the world.
The LAMPA idea was hatched and nurtured by the Foundation for an Open Society DOTS, Swedbank and the sustainable change agency SPARK from Denmark. It was inspired by similar democracy festivals in Denmark, Sweden and Estonia . The LAMPA conversation festival home is the Cēsis castle park. Many organizations and activists are involved in its creation, cooking up festival events and offering financial support.
Trust, sustainability and diversity – these three principles are at the heart of the LAMPA conversation festival. These are the three pillars on which we seek to build Latvia’s future.
Entrance to the festival is free of charge.
