Community Conversation: Pascal Gielen on physical distancing and our democracies

We invite you to join our community conversation: Pascal Gielen on physical distancing and our democracies on October 9, 2020, at 2.00 pm – 3.00 pm CET.

In times of Corona, physical distancing became the norm. But, in arts as in life, we need proximities to come together, to act together. We, citizens, can only be citizens when we have places to meet, disagree, agree and thus be political actors: public space. Often we need to create those public spaces, sometimes we need to breathe new life in existing places. Perhaps Corona taught us all that nearness as a concept – between persons, between political actors – is what we need to become interlocal citizens. What consequences does that have for our democracy? And our arts and culture?

In this community conversation, Pascal Gielen firstly presents a lecture, after which we’ll have a discussion.

The conversation will be hosted in zoom and we ask you to register by filling out this form.
