Family Festival

An annual summer conference around the theme of 'Family Today'.

Family? How does that work? How do we want to live together? Nothing is fixed any more. No one wants to simply live in old ways and according to set patterns.

The questions have become bigger and more difficult. Precisely because there is no longer the one form that has been handed down for centuries, but more and more different forms, the question is much more urgent today: How do I want to live? Or: How can I freely and self-determinedly find my own task, my own path in life - and yet also find, experience and pass on connectedness, faithfulness and reliability?

We want to discuss these and similar questions together. We invite you to the Goetheanum in summer, the most beautiful time of year, when the park is in bloom and provides a wonderful setting for parents and children alike for our Family Festival at the Goetheanum.



Today, people with special needs are increasingly taking active steps to assert their rights, to shape their lives in a self-determined way and to participate in society. The Anthropoi Bundesverband and Anthropoi Selbsthilfe support them in this.
