Festival of discussions BŪTENT! (“Makes Sense!”)
On Saturday at 7 pm during the festival of discussions BŪTENT! (“Makes Sense!”) we will be talking about "Art Collecting in Lithuania: Fashion, Business or Lifestyle?" together with Lewben Art Foundation's board member Ramunė Zabulienė, Skaidra Trilupaitytė and Algirdas Petraitis.
Festival of discussions BŪTENT! (“Makes Sense!”) is an annual assembly in a cosy open-air area of Birštonas with a festival-type atmosphere, where people from political, business, academic, cultural and non-governmental organizations discuss important topics for the development of the state, share ideas and forge new collaborations.
More than 90 open air discussions, forums, speeches and talk-shows are expected to gather about 5000 participants during 7-8th of September 2018.
BŪTENT! is a member of the Democracy Festivals’ Family with 8 members in Sweden, Finland, Norway, Denmark, Island, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. All these festivals are local platforms for a constructive political dialogue across opinions, age, gender and hierarchy where people come together each summer to discuss how to improve their countries. Civil society activists, entrepreneurs, government officials, ministers and people at large sit together and casually talk about how to make their country a better place for everybody.
