Faust Youth Summer Conference at Goetheanum


The Youth Section of the Anthroposophical Society at Goetheanum invites young people from all over the world to have an unique experience at the Faust Youth Summer Conference at Goetheanum, on the occasion of Goethe’s Faust 1&2, full version. This is a very rare opportunity with 17 hours of theatre! Several workshops and lectures will tackle essential questions raised in Goethe’s masterpiece such as who am I, Am I Faust, the development of identity, becoming human, etc. The conference offers young people the possibility to deepen and reflect on this existential issues together with others.

Thanks to a generous donation from some foundations the conference fee could be reduced to only 150 CHF all inclusive (performance, accommodation and meals). Five days in Dornach for this price does not happen everyday! Therefore we would like to ask for your support to encourage young people in your schools to come to the conference.

The conference is directed to school pupils, students and those in training under 35 years old that can participate as a class, a group or individually.

Under the motto “Am I Faust?”, the International Youth Summer Conference will take place from the 25th to the 29th July 2016 at the Goetheanum, in Dornach, Switzerland. (The performance will be in German, simultaneously translated into English and Spanish).
