At Culture for Solidarity FEST artists, researchers, cultural mediators, journalists, activists and representatives of institutions will discuss the future of Europe, beyond the European elections in May this year. The conversations on work, housing, public space, diversity, identity and democracy will be based on the participatory action research in five European cities as part of the project Culture for Solidarity.
The program is upon invitation but great parts of it are open to the public, see the schedule in Spanish.
One of the public events is the screening of Ursus – a film in which ex-workers of the Ursus Factory re-enact one day of work in a plant that no longer exists. Trailer.
We especially welcome you to “Imagining new ways of living together” a public panel on the role of cultural practitioners in our European societies. Speakers: Igor Stokfiszewski (Krytyka Polityczna), Jane Wells (Tate Exchange, Tate), Lara García Díaz (Culture Commons Quest Office), Iva Cukic (Ministry of Space) on April 3rd.
The FEST is organized by ZEMOS98 in collaboration with European Cultural Foundation (Amsterdam) and Krytyka Polityczna (Warsaw).
