meltingpot


Meltingpot is an international forum before and during the largest multi-genre festival in the Czech Republic, Colours of Ostrava.

The forum provides a new platform for an exchange of innovative ideas. Where are we going and what are we leaving
behind? In politics, economics, science, design, and philosophy.

Some things change and some things don’t. But there are no borders: only ideas for a future worth having.
