The Mutual Inspirations Festival 2020 – John Amos Comenius has come to a close. The festival, culture worldwide, and of course humanity faced an unprecedented year and tremendous challenges. Through the loss and suffering and loneliness of social distancing, new avenues for hope and joy evolved. Ironically, the Father of Modern Education also witnessed the horrors of the pandemic of his own period and yet never lost faith for his people as well as all nations. He invested his greatest energy, time and wisdom in the quality and universal education of future generations.
In these hard times of the Covid-19 pandemic, the imagination and smiles of the children and students participating in this year’s festival have brought light and delight. We thank them foremost for carrying on the traditions and learnings of their elders and teaching others about not only the greatest pedagogue of all times but also about the history, language, cooking, and holidays of the Czech Republic.
We wish you a peaceful holiday season. Stay tuned for the announcement of next year’s festival personality!
