Kultursymposium Weimar 2019

[Dummy] Kultursymposium Weimar Startseite-Intro © Cordula Flegel 19 - 21 JUNE

The Goethe-Institut is organising an international cultural symposium in Weimar from the 19th to the 21st of June 2019 under the title "Recalculating the Route". More than 300 participants from all over the world will come to Weimar to discuss the great upheavals of our time.

All around the world, future pathways are being recalculated. Rapid technological development is producing fundamental changes in society, culture, and the economy, and is introducing unforeseen possibilities and posing many new questions. At the same time, the desire for manageable and easily understandable circumstances seems to be increasing worldwide. Straightforward answers to an increasingly complex world are in high demand, and not only in the political sphere.
