Prelude Practicalities


As the organization of the Prelude is complex we decided to set one unique price for the whole Programme, except for the case you’d like to join only Christine Gruwez’s lecture on Monday evening.

You can choose between:

  • basic fee: 90 Euro for the whole two-days Programme (including meals as described further)
  • solidarity fee: 120 Euro, thus offering the possibility to Hungarian young people to participate free of charge
  • Monday lecture fee: 30 Euro (including dinner and transport from Budapest to Szentendre/Pilisszentlászló). Higher contributions are received with gratitude.

Payment instructions will be published before the 13th of May on the homepage and sent to the registered participants via email too. For the moment it is important to see how many participants we have and how many places the solidarity fees offer to the interested young people, so please, do complete the Registration form on this link.



On Monday participants in the Prelude will be granted transport between Budapest, Pilisszentlászló and Szentendre in the morning and evening, after the lecture. It will also be possible to join the programme directly in Budapest: details will be updated here and also communicated via email to the registered people. On Tuesday all courses are being held at the Waldorf School in Pilisszentlászló, except for Tomoko Kawashima’s course, which is intended primarily to serve wider professional and young audience in Budapest. Anybody who wishes to join this course will be helped to find a transport solution.



On Monday and Tuesday breakfasts come with the accommodation. Lunch on Monday is integrated in a self-organising way during the Biography Walks through Budapest; everybody will receive guidance from their host (not included in the Prelude fee). Dinner on Monday is a vegetarian buffet served at the venue of the evening lecture (included in the Prelude fee). Lunch and dinner on Tuesday are served at the Waldorf School (included in the Prelude fee).



Monday Biography Walks: The hosts will make clear well in advance in what language(s) they are conducting the group. They may arrange that young persons or other participating witnesses act as interpreters.


Monday afternoon Harvesting Session will be conducted by Hungarian Arft of Hosting colleagues in Hungarian and English. According to participants’ needs it will be possible to arrange German, Spanish and French interpreting.


Monday Evening Lecture by Christine Gruwez will be interpreted simultaneously from English to Hungarian. According to participants’ needs it will be possible to arrange German, Spanish and French interpreting. Since providing the professional and technical background for involves preparation and expenses, these interpreting facilities will only be provided if there are enough participants requesting this service through their registration by absolute latest the 13th of May.


Workshops on Tuesday are facilitated in English. With the consent of the facilitator and according to participants’ needs it may be possible to arrange Hungarian, German, Spanish and French interpreting.
