ECF is very happy to be a partner in the Re:Creating Europe - Forum on European Culture from 1 to 3 June in Amsterdam, featuring a.o. Jude Law, Chantal Mouffe, Rem Koolhaas, Benjamin Barber, Ulrich Seidl, Ivo Van Hove, Wendelien van Oldenborgh, Slavenka Drakulić, Ruth Mackenzie, Luc Tuymans, Myriam Sahraoui and much much more. We are part of a series of public events and expert meetings, and will share insights throughout our social media. Some of the events will be live-streamed.
If the idea of Europe is to appeal to people in the future, it must be based on art and culture - for culture is what makes Europe, states the Forum. Visionary artists and thinkers from all over Europe will recreate the perception of Europe in the months to come.
The Forum is an initiative of DutchCulture and De Balie, focusing on the strength, influence and value of art and culture for Europe. As a run-up to the event in June, the Forum on European Culture is organising programmes in Amsterdam and throughout Europe: in Kiev, Warsaw, Athens, Sofia and Vienna. The platform will present the reports on the scouting investigations across Europe in the run-up to the June event.
