European festivals outlined the form of the 2021 festival summer

European festivals outlined the form of the 2021 festival summer

The feasibility of open-air events during the pandemic has been discussed extensively among the experts and the organizers of Pohoda, as well as the organizers of other events since March. In the spring of last year, professors Krištúfková and Štefkovičová helped to adopt a decision to postpone the festival. Since the beginning of this year, experts have been suggesting that the situation will be compatible with the organization of the festival in early summer 2021 – of course, while following many production, security, communication and hygiene measures aimed at minimizing the risk of virus spread. We have been communicating very closely with Richard Kollár and Alexandra Bražinová from the Science Helps – Covid-19 initiative, and several inspiring ideas have already emerged from the meeting. At the same time, the organizers of cultural events in Slovakia do not sit idly by waiting for the situation to improve. In January, they offered to help state authorities and local governments in order to speed up the vaccination process as much as possible through the We Wish Slovakia Good Health initiative. → read more
