June 9th to 13th: The 2nd World Congress of the Hedonist International
This year, the Hedonist International celebrates its World Congress for the second time. On the site of a former border barrack in Riebau, a small village near Salzwedel in Saxony-Anhalt, there will meet advocates and masterminds, dancers and friends of a good life for all.
The Congress will consist of three topics: protest, party, and action. They will be filled with a wide range of talks and workshops held by political activists, old and new communication guerill@s, scientists, musicians, philosophers, and artists. Please visit http://hedonist-international.org/worldcongress2011/?page_id=318 for further details. There are some talks in English, and we will do our best to provide some basic consecutive translation for the rest.
It seems clear that a hedonist congress without singing and dancing is like summer without sun. That’s why the congress program will be surrounded by music and performances, cinema, and art. After the two congress days Friday and Saturday, the whole thing will end up in a whole-day and open-air dancing workshop on Sunday.
Hard to say if this Hedonist summer camp can be called a festival, a conference, a political gathering or an open air. We assume: something in between all this, with some bits of everything in it. We are sure that it will be a colorful and pleasurable experience.
We want to make sure that people can come to this memorable event in a comfortable and cheap way. From and to Berlin, we have thus organized some shuttle buses which bring you there at the cost price of 8 Euros one-way. The Hedo-Liner (buy tickets here) goes on Thursday and Friday evening from Berlin to Riebau and from Riebau to Berlin on Monday. Please book now! We need to plan the buses and their costs, so it would be great if you arrange to book before June 3rd (Friday) noon.
We are looking forward to meet you under the sun of Riebau!
