Paralelní Polis decade
10-01, 17:00–18:00 (Europe/Prague), Studio 1

Paralelní Polis represents a non-state, non-profit entity, birthed in 2014 amidst the creative activism of the Ztohoven collective. The annals of time have witnessed our continued stewardship of the esteemed Hackers Congress. As we now converge to bring its momentous tenth iteration to a reverent closure, we simultaneously embark on a meaningful commencement of the tenth chapter in the chronicles of Paralelní Polis. How has this profound social experiment metamorphosed and evolved over the epochs, and how might its venerable progenitors distill its essence and triumphs, as they reflect upon its myriad passages?
