The Event

The concept was to showcase the unlimited capacity of human creativity through innovative solutions. Simultaneously illustrating Latvian history, culture and values from a contemporary perspective.

The concept of the entire event (which consisted of 3 parts: creative workshops, multimedia exhibition, concert performance) was to showcase, through innovative and non-traditional solutions the unlimited capacity and abilities of human creativity: simultaneously illustrating Latvian history, culture, traditions and values from a contemporary perspective.
The idea was by blending 700 artists from diverse fields (symphony orchestras, choristers, instrumental groups, soloists, ethno musicians, percussionists, dancers, painters, bagpipers, sounds of living nature, multimedia artists, illusionists, levitating performers) etc., different genres of classic and modern art, combining dance with sports and even acrobatics, mixing technology with science, to ignite children’s interest in areas they are seemingly not very interested in, for example, Latvian history and culture, musical genres (for instance, opera), traditions and values, by presenting them through a modern-day prism.
