Alongside the exhibitions and games open for everyone to try and play, the festival will feature a conference under the title of “Women and Traditional Sports". Speakers from European universities will put forward their research results recognizing the valuable work women throughout history have done in preserving and transmitting traditional games and all aspects of culture.
