How can culture offer solidarity and common ground to overcome economic and political conflicts of our time? Two courageous examples are the Athens Biennale (Greece) and the Visual Culture Reasearch Center (Ukraine), both laureates of the 2015 ECF Princess Margriet Award for Culture.

We invite you to join the Radical Agoras Lab on ECF Labs, which aims to understand the cultural and political contexts in which they work, and to open up a broader conversation on culture in times of conflict and crisis. 

Applications are now open for the Idea Camp 2015. The theme for this year’s edition is Build the City. 50 people will be chosen to work on their ideas at the Idea Camp, co-hosted by our Networked Programme hub Subtopia from 22 to 25 September 2015 in Botkyrka, Sweden.

Deadline to apply is 13 April. If you have any questions, we are hosting a live Q&A on 8 April from 12:00 to 13:00 CET.
