MitOst Festival

MitOst e.V. promotes cultural exchange and active citizenship in Europe and its neighbouring regions. With 1400 members in 45 different countries as well as with various partners we are part of a dynamic European network. We organise international programmes and projects and serve as a platform for new forms of social engagement and projects.

Once per year, MitOst invites its members and everyone being interested in cultural and social and civic exchange in Europe and its neighbouring regions to the International MitOst Festival, a four day international forum offering cultural activities, further trainings and networking opportunities.

Since 2003, the festival has taken place annually – each time in a different city. From 4th to 8th of October 2017, Frankfurt (Oder)/Germany and Słubice (Poland) will host the MitOst Festival.

The festival is the highlight of MitOst's year – a time when the diversity of MitOst and the commitment and enthusiasm of its members are on full display.

About 300 people partake, getting to know the host city and its inhabitants. Participants will present their own voluntary projects, hold events and mini-projects, offer workshops, and network. There will also be plenty of space for self-organised intercultural cooperation. A general programme of film presentations, exhibitions, discussions, readings, city tours, and concerts will bring the spirit of MitOst to the host city while uniting members, partner organisations, and local inhabitants.
