Information for Sponsor
Passion for Freedom Festival - a week long event celebrating freedom of speech and artistic expression, one secular law for all citizens, democratic values, secular society, gender equality and freedom to choose a sexual partner.
The non-profit festival is run by a very small group of passionate people committed to protecting our freedom and equality in modern, democratic society. They spend their own money and time to make it happen. Although we are supported by One Law for All organization and few generous private donors we are striving to develop the Festival and deliver the message to the wider international community.
If everyone who ever came to Passion for Freedom Festival have given £10 we’d reach this modest goal.
