The Festival of Centuries
The Festival of the Century is a knowledge festival. With its mixture of knowledge, art, and culture, the 2018 festival focuses on La belle époque, French for The Beautiful Era. La belle éppoque encircles two wars between 1871 and 1914. During that period Europe was characterised by political stability while culture, technology and art flourish. The festival brings together scientists, artists, institutions, and fiery creative souls with a programme that is both creative and has an edge. There will be salons, concerts, dinners, literary nights, films, and exhibitions presenting scientists, authors, musicians, and artists side-by-side. The focus is on knowledge, yet it is always with the cultural experience as a sensual spice.
