Václav Havel Place is a memorial commemorating the life and legacy of playwright, philosopher, dissident, and Czech president Václav Havel (1936-2011). The installation of Havel Places is a worldwide project to create a network of public spaces where people can hold frank exchanges of important ideas, an expression of Havel’s belief in the power of mutual dialogue.
The memorial at Lewis & Clark is only the second in the United States. The first is located at Georgetown University. Its installation here is made possible through a collaboration between Lewis & Clark, the Embassy of the Czech Republic in Washington, D.C., and the Václav Havel Library.
Fresh new short plays written, directed and acted by students on a theme TBA.
