Dear Participants of Terra Parzival Michaelmas 2014 Council Meeting!

In the name of our Terra Parzival team I would like to thank you very much for your paticipation. We hope that we succeeded  to create  for all of you the experience of magic and meaning but also serious challenge posed by the immortal Parzival story. This would not be possible without the “sit-in the orchestra” journey through Brahms Violin Concerto at the very start of our council. I would like to express our appreciation to Mr. Henry Tillman of GRISONS PEAK for his generous support.

After tuning our ears and all other senses to the  inner musical and outer Slovenian lanscape, permitting imagination flowing along Micaela Sauber’s  beautiful storytelling, the resonace platform was reached for every participant to share productive ideas for the further development of Terra Parzival vision and development. 

We will keep you informed about all further developments.

Gandin Foundation, leader of the project “Terra Parzival – European regional development model 2014-2020″



which will be held from 26 to 28 September 2014 on various locations in Terra Parzival, Slovenia.

You will spend three days in experience of music and ancient story. Our conversations will circle around emerging future of Terra Parzival project and Ankenstein Academy. Dynamics of “inner and outer journey” through mystical Grail landscape will follow the pattern of qualities as expressed through the ascending musical scale: from the prime on Friday evening to the octave on Sunday.

Terra Parzival – regional development model is built on 3 decades of rich experience and good practices, over 200 IDRIART intercultural festivals on all continents; on inspiration and innovation; in hope that we – people in Slovenia – on the outskirts of greater Europe, through the timeless story of the noble knight Parzival and his thorny path to self-knowledge, will be able to take a step forward and ask each other the famous Grail question of compassion: “What’s bothering you? What can I do for you to support you? ”

In Terra Parzival we co-create the possibilities that as a community and society we begin to ascend to the level where everyone can have the opportunity to give their unique contribution. We do not want to become just another success story. From the periphery of Europe we would like to provide a comprehensive model of good practice, an exit from the value crisis. We want to inspire a path towarards polyphonic European identity!
