The Paradisodebate kicks off the Dutch cultural season. This annual event is organised by Kunsten '92, Paradiso, ACI and the Academy of Arts, and brings together artists, cultural professionals and entrepreneurs, politicians and the public to discuss urgent topics, such as the important connections between arts, culture and society. This year, for the first time, ECF is partnering in the event through a media collaboration with a view to connect local and national concerns to the wider European context.

Who do we meet? Who do we not meet? And why? Which ‘European dreams’ about public space are clashing?
