What is ImvrosFest?

Organised by the Translation Village team,
ImvrosFest offers a multilingual and transcultural experience
for people who desire a free, fair and peaceful life.

We will be hosting 7 great multilingual and multiinstrumental music groups on our stage: Ayanbeyan, Deli Reçel, Imvros Ensemble, Ruşen Alkar, Seyyah, Serbest Bölge and Sinafi Trio. 

There will be 7 dance workshops and participatory performances from different parts of the world: Anatolian, Balkan, European and many more.

We’ll discuss how to improve our working conditions, solve our professional problems and build solidarity economy models among our community.
