Published on in NEWS

Major public event on May 25, 2024

The Dresden science and cultural institutions under the umbrella of DRESDEN-concept e. V. and the alliance #WOD Weltoffenes Dresden invite you to participate in 4 star parades and to a festival of democracy on May 25, 2024 on Dresden's Altmarkt.

Together we want to send a clear signal for democracy and our fundamental rights: The dignity of every human being is inviolable and the voices of minorities are heard. For us, these are self-evident values that are increasingly under threat. We want to protect these fundamental values of our democratic and open society together. The freedom of science and art is fundamental for a society that wants to overcome the great challenges of our time.

We cordially invite you to join us! Join us in our commitment to democracy!
Starting at 2 p.m., several groups will march in 4 star trains to the Altmarkt. There will be a stage program with speeches and music. On the square, we would like to facilitate encounters and discussions with stands and various scientific and artistic exchange formats. Tell us about your experiences. Everyone is welcome to join us in working for democracy.
