Guided tour and discussion with Barbara Coudenhove-Kalergi, journalist and Oliver Rathkolb, historian.
Moderation: Renata Schmidtkunz ORF Austria 1

World salon: a meeting place to understand how the region has been shaped by migration, between discourse and concerts.

Still today, the Salzkammergut region remains a magnet for people who are seeking work in the fields of tourism, business or also care work. While migratory movements in the past were often determined by political and religious factors, today it is increasingly economically motivated with all of its challenges for the long-established and newcomers alike. The world salon draws upon salon culture as a societal meeting place between the public and private spheres – as a place for exchange about politics, culture and economics. Representatives of communities and experts will discuss historical immigration and emigration as well as make music. This will result in learning from one another.
