SYMBOLIC CLOSING OF THE FESTIVAL. BENEDICTION OF THE CITY AND ITS RESIDENTS
On the last day of the CityTelling Festival we invite you to Ramybės Park (Kaunas Old Cemetery) for a short time once again.
Reconciliation with our past was one of the leitmotifs of the opening event.
However, during the closing festival event we want to take a look into the future. What kind of future would we like for ourselves and our children?
Ramybės Park symbolizes a space of mutual respect where different cultures and traditions come together. Similarly to the opening event of the festival, we will meet again with the priests of the four denominations for a very sensitive and meaningful ritual: the benediction of the city and its residents. It is a symbolic gesture of dialogue, openness and respect. At the same time, we wish this city to become a place of tolerance and a meeting place for different cultures.
Event initiated by Kaunas 2022 programme “Memory Office”.
