Václav Havel European Dialogues – Prague Annual Conference 2015

29 – 30 May 2015

For the second time a two-day international conference, which follows the spiritual legacy of Václav Havel, will be held in the DOX Centre for Contemporary Art.

The Václav Havel European Dialogues is an international project that aims to initiate and stimulate a discussion about issues determining the direction of contemporary Europe while referring to the European spiritual legacy of Václav Havel. This idea takes its main inspiration from Václav Havel’s essay Power of the Powerless. More than other similarly focused projects, the Václav Havel European Dialogues aims to offer the “powerless” a platform to express themselves and in so doing to boost their position within Europe.

The Václav Havel European Dialogues is a long-term project and involves cooperation with organisations in various European cities (European Dialogues in Berlin and Bruges). Individual meetings, which take the form of a conference, are targeted primarily at secondary and third-level students, as well as specialists and members of the public interested in European issues.

Online registration and programme of the conference will be available at the http://www.vaclavhavel-library.org/en websites within next few days.

The conference is organized by the Václav Havel Library in cooperation with the Representation of the European Commission in the Czech Republic, the Forum 2000 Foundation, and the DOX Centre of Contemporary Art.
