Want to promote democracy, equality and culture across Europe, in Prague? The Transeuropa Festival will take place simultaneously in 12 European cities from May 6-15, 2011. The goal is to create a common political and cultural space for exchange, debate and action.

The festival promotes innovation and experimentalism through a mix of art, debates, music and lectures. Transeuropa plans to take tough topics head-on; their themes for 2011 are migration, Roma and travelers rights, media freedom and the economy.
