Ideas in Agora
A program dedicated to the analysis of public spirit, organized by the Bucharest Municipality Museum in partnership with Orbis Tertius/ The Third World Association which is offering the content. The meetings take place in various formats (conferences, colloquies, seminars, public debates etc.) and encourage dialogues on trends, movements, famous people, views of the world, theories and ideologies that agree, resonate or oppose each other.
