Cultivated Associations, the AEGON evenings, a series of literature and arts events in the Bárka were launched in September 2006 as a co-operation between AEGON Hungary Ltd. and the Bárka Theatre. Outstanding figures from the Hungarian arts world are the guests of Róbert Alföldi. Music always plays an important part in the evenings based on conversation, readings and at times the exhibition and projection of images, crossing the genre borders as the musicians invited respond creatively to what they hear or see during the evening.
