LAMPA Conversation festival is a Latvian open-air democracy festival organised in Cēsis since 2015. The festival’s mission is to strengthen democracy and democratic conversation culture, foster civic engagement, and encourage a desire for lifelong learning in an ever-changing world. Over the years, it has become a meeting place to exchange ideas and seek understanding between people of diverse opinions, political viewpoints and expectations.
The festival programme usually features more than 200 events covering a myriad of topics – politics, economics, technologies, education, security, health, sustainability, and many more – in different formats like conversations, debates, talks, workshops, performances, and comedy stand-ups in Latvian, English and Russian.
