The Passion for Freedom art festival answers three questions:
- 1. What is freedom?
2. How easy it is to lose it?
3. How hard it is to get it back?
It is a competition organised by independent group of friends from all over Europe who protect freedom of speech of artists.
The festival will present the work of 60 "brave artists” contributing film, photography, painting, sculpture, books and other forms of artistic expression, often on highly controversial topics of social importance.
