Crossroads for Ideas will travel through each of the new EU member states - the Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Slovakia, and Slovenia - during the fall season.

In Slovakia, Crossroads for Ideas consists of an exhibition of science, photography and film.

A mutual Slovak-British photo project will be held in November as part of the Month of Photography festival. The science exhibition, called United Kingdom Space: Research of the Solar System, showcases various space missions and the findings of British scientists. After opening in Bratislava, the exhibition will tour Banská Bystrica (Benický House through October 29), Košice (Technical Museum through November 14), and finally Žilina (Žilina University through November 30). The science programme is accompanied by additional events, including presentations and talks by British scientists.

The movie portion of the exhibition features recently made British films that depict Britain's multicultural society. Find the Slovak premiere in Spišská Nová Ves, and then additional screenings in Trnava (October 23-24), Banská Bystrica (October 25-26) and Bratislava (Aupark; October 26-27).
