The Fluxus Festival is one of the greatest successes of the Kaunas 2022 programme. This is a true Kaunas carnival! People in Kaunas begin preparing for this celebration well in advance, creating costumes and building props, because the main point of this festival is to climb up Parodos Hill in the most unexpected ways and costumes.Like every year, Parodos Hill (usually a very busy street) will be closed off for exactly 22 minutes to celebrate this carnival!The climb up the hill will begin at the square named after the founder of Fluxus, George (Jurgis) Maciunas and, once they make it to the top, participants will join in a special programme.The Fluxus Festival invites you to an extraordinary full-day programme presenting all sorts of objects, perfor-mances, and activities created since 2018 by commu-nities in collaboration with various artists, as well as the opening of new exhibitions. At night, the programme will present a breathtaking show created by local com-munities together with Walk the Plank (Great Britain) and other impressive performing groups.Fluxus is about never-ending movement and the drive to rise, climb, and change: from a temporary to a con-temporary capital. From the centre to the not-centre. From the routine to the unexpected.This festival will be a celebration of the city for the city.
