COMM’ON along with Cultopia welcomed and hosted 13 MitOst members and friends from Athens at SEED.Athens, for the local Athens Satelite of the 19th MitOst-Festival.
To limit international travel, and therefore the potential spread of the COVID-19 virus, the 19th MitOst festival took place in various locations as smaller gatherings rather than as one, large international festival. These gatherings were known as Satellites and can be found in several countries around the region. Each Satellite location created and hosted it's own programme schedule, and at planned moments connected with one another for joint activities online!
On the night of the 24th September 2021 we, the Athens Satelite, connected with other locations all over Europe!
Berlin Satelite, Moldova Satelite, Brussels Satelite, Zemo Magharo - Kakheti Satelite (Georgia),
Kaspi Satelite (Georgia), Kobuleti Satelite (Georgia), Izmir Satelite, Thessaloniki Satelite, Athens Satelite, Alexandria Satelite, Balkans Satelite, Tirana Satelite.
