Vytautas Magnus University
Highly anticipated throughout the Transform4Europe Alliance, a week from the 4th to the 8th of May, 2022, will be dedicated to culture, when Vytautas Magnus University, together with the entire community of the Alliance, will be holding a Festival of European Culture. The week will be filled with every form of free art, allowing visitors to make fascinating discoveries and establish valuable connections. It is nothing short of symbolic that the first cultural Festival of the Alliance will occur during the year when Kaunas is the European Capital of Culture. A 4-day festival will invite students and staff members from the Alliance partner universities to Kaunas city, where an engaging programme will be waiting for them.
The programme of the Festival includes many entertaining activities, such as MasterClasses and workshops in creative writing, photography, animation, theatre, dance and many other fields. Moreover, the participants will gather in a special event to share exciting facts about their countries and cities and bond over their shared experience and exploration of Kaunas. The Festival will keep our guests and local students busy as there will be plenty of opportunities for them to explore what Kaunas, the European Capital of Culture, has to offer. The traditional Spring Festival, organised by the VMU Student Representative Council, will also take place on 7 May. Moreover, in addition to various exhibitions of globally renowned artists, of special interest is Kaunas Literature Week. Its programme lists an opportunity for participants to join the open mic night, visit open-air book fairs and attend meetings with authors from all over Europe.
