An Evening of Philosophy

Since 2022 we also organize Evenings of Philosophy as main festival’s accompanying events. They are being held at Prešov’s beloved Libresso Books & Coffee (Hlavná street 29) and mostly consist of a public lecture, text seminar (or workshop), and discussion with speakers and the public. 

The aim of these Evenings is to revitalize contact of the public with philosophical thought and to support autonomous philosopical reflection through thematic evenings in a friendly and informal atmosphere right in the middle of Prešov’s old town. All events are free to attend and open to the widest public (and all types of questions).
