FESTIVAL OF CRIMINOLOGY DEMISTIFY: TOGETHER WE CAN

Executioners and inquisition, serial killers and mass murders, gallows, guillotines, witches of Salem and the hound of Baskerville. All of it so familiar yet still so unknown. All that comes from beyond the secret. From where all our fears lie. Real and imaginary. New and undying.

This year we will cast our sights to those who are so often left on the side lines – the victims of crime, their families and loved ones. During the festival together we will reveal the great mysteries of helping those who have suffered from crime, we will search for paths that are worth taking when trying to help those in need. We will learn how to overcome our own fears and how to aid others in overcoming their own hurdles that stop them from helping others.

Dare to delve in to the world of secrets and face off against your fears and ingrained stereotypes in the first criminology festival in Lithuania, maybe even the whole Europe – DEMISTIFY!

Festival will combine many forms of education and art, festivities and lessons, action and serenity, joy and sadness.

We will be waiting for you in the municipality of Kalvarija, Šilėnai village. In the land of hundred oaks, hidden in the forests of Dzūkija and the plains of Suvalkija, on the border between myth and reality. We start at Friday, August 13th.
