he focus of this year’s Mikser Festival is threefold. In the spotlight, under the umbrella of topics of “sensitive society,“ are female creativity and gender equality, as well as the refugee crisis and possible directions for integration into European society, and, lastly, the opening of a platform for the exchange of knowledge and ideas.
Female creativity and equality between male and female principles, which are different in character but of equal value, are topics that will occupy the majority of the program of this year’s Mikser Festival. Numerous exhibitions, presentations, debates, performances, and films will present the public with the visionary ideas of female authors, especially in the fields of architecture and design. While these have contributed significantly to the improvement of our everyday lives, their contribution remains insufficiently or completely unrecognized.
