LAMPA conversation festival taking place June 28-29

The historic city of Cēsis is set for a massive influx of chatterboxes June 28 and 29 with the LAMPA conversation festival taking place there.

The full program is available online and comes with a built-in planner to help you make sure you are in the right time at the right place to listen to the discussions you want to hear.

Many of the discussions, debates, workshops and other orations will be available to follow online on LSM's Latvian language service. There will also be a livestream operated by the LMT telecom company.

 

“LAMPA will get more courageous this year and invite others to do likewise. Let's find out what the boldness of Latvia's DNA is, how brave we really are and where we should make an effort to increase it,” said festival director Ieva Morica ahead of the event.

Discussions will cover a wide range of topics - mental health, regional development, mobility, taxation, security, contemporary art, media, biodiversity, technology and other issues. 

Last year's event attracted an estimated 16,000 participants - roughly equivalent to the entire population of Cēsis itself. Entrance is free of charge.
