ABOUT US

The project was initiated by an international team of four scenographers and lighting designers,

who are also researchers and professors in higher education, 
who met during international university exchanges (Setkání/Encounter - CZ). 

 

Their common interest in scenography, lighting and pedagogy

led them to organise the first Svoboda meetings (2018 and 2019)

and then to carry the #Svobodays project as it exists today.
