Public debates
The public debates of the Red House are an invitation for an authentic and honest public dialogue on our shared life as citizens. They open discussions on the most important social, political and cultural issues of our time. The starting point of most debates are the interesting, in-depth analyses of panelists that aim to provoke an open discussion. You can take part in the live debates or ask questions and make comments online in the respective Facebook event. Your questions/comments will be included by the moderator in the live event, half of which is dedicated to a discussion.

The debates are open to a variety of speakers and social groups. We make a particular effort to present voices that cannot be heard elsewhere – young people, women, minorities, etc.

Past projects
European Parliament Debate Network
2016–2017

In recent years propaganda in traditional and social media in Bulgaria has undermined the credibility of the European Union (EU) and its institutions and has reduced political activity. The aim of the project is to engage the public with the role of the European Parliament and to restore reliance on EU institutions by creating a wide network for discussions of the legislation of the Union.
Challenges to the Main European Values and the Future of Europe
2016–2017

Nineteen pan-European discussions were held as part of the project on topics identified as crucial to understanding the current challenges facing Europe.
Bulgarian Network for Civil Dialogue
2014 – 2015

The aim of the project was to develop the public sphere in Bulgaria by creating places for open civil debate. Eight independent cultural organizations from seven cities in Bulgaria joined the network to hold a series of civil debates and discussions each in their own city open to all citizens for discussing topics important to local communities and hearing different positions and voices.
