Namely, one of the programs of the festival will be a symposium in the area of interaction between minority communities and the domicile center, how they shape, change, direct the most concrete historical, political and cultural moments in the context of a very complex historical, political and cultural heritage.
Professional theater troupes and theaters, which are an authentic artistic expression of minority language communities in the countries where they live (outside their country of origin), can participate at the festival. The basis for selection is the European map of minority languages:
