Voices of Meltingpot: Virtual Message
The Meltingpot international discussion forum annually introduces over 150 inspiring personalities
from numerous fields and various places of the world. The third year took place within the music
festival Colours of Ostrava in June 2018 and over 20,000 festival attendees joined in the Meltingpot
Voices of Meltingpot
Anyone who missed a Meltingpot guest (or all of them) live
on site, may now follow the unique insight in the inner worlds
of the personalities of the forum from the comforts of their
homes through the movie project, Voices of Meltingpot.
“We want to preserve the inspiration and energy which the
important and influential guests of the forum radiated and
delivered to the audiences on site,” said the founder and
curator of Forum Meltingpot, Ms Zlata Holušová.
The speeches are recorded by a special camera with
a one-way mirror which makes the viewers feel as if the
personality on screen is talking to them. The exceptional
feel of the videos is also appreciated by the speakers.
“Individual personalities in the videos reflect the wide
range of cultures and experiences which, like instruments
in an orchestra, work together to produce a symphony
accompanying the spirit of Voices of Meltingpot,” said Dan
Millman, author of the famous novel Way of the Peaceful
Warrior. One of the most popular interviews in the project
of Voices of Meltingpot is the speech by Mark Gungor
who said, “Thank you for making me part of the project.
Forum Meltingpot was an incredible experience to me. The
audience was amazing, longing to hear each and every
word. That is a speaker’s dream come true.” Organizers
believe that this wasn’t Mark Gungor’s last visit to Forum
The 4th year of Forum Meltingpot will take place at
Vítkovice Lower Area in Ostrava during the festival Colours
of Ostrava, July 17-20, 2019.
