  1. Is there already a website for the event. I seems to be quiet big… Are there migrants-organisations of Brasov directly involved in the planning-procedure? How many days long is the event?

    1. Hello,
      The event will happen on October 8. I want to upload the poster and the program (will be finished at the beginning of next week).
      Do I send you the documents?
      I don’t know how to upload files here.
