Embassies Festival 2017

The 3rd edition of the festival aims at providing a fresh, contemporary perspective on the anthropology of worldwide cultural manifestos. The concept is born out of a cultural need of exploring a very wide multicultural specter, to which the Romanian audience lacked access until now.
