What is CaféLitt?

CaféLitt is not a place; it is a gathering of minds. We are a group of Persian speaking people who gather every Friday evening around 20h00 to discuss various subjects and share different ideas, ranging vastly from history to science, from literature to fine arts. The language is usually Persian but it is not a rule. Every week, one takes the responsibility of presenting a topic for about 45 minutes in a subject s/he is intimately familiar with or has an expertise in. Afterwards, the evening turns into a discussion forum and all members of the audience will have an opportunity to ask their question(s) and share their points of view. We also occasionally invite artists, writers, journalists,… to present and talk about their work.

CaféLitt provides an unparalleled opportunity for learning about culture, science philosophy,… in a relaxed and friendly environment, and for sharing your knowledge and expertise with like-minded members of Cafélitt
