Community Conversation: Culture for Solidarity

Culture for Solidarity
All across Europe, citizens (including those who are not formally recognised as such) are realising they are not alone and are organising their communities. They are creating new online and offline spaces where working together and generating solidarity is what matters. In these spaces culture functions as a language to describe reality, to express feelings and opinions. Culture works to strengthen social ties and helps to imagine alternative ways of living and engaging with others in understanding, trust and peace. Connecting these spaces will provide crucial infrastructure for a cultural movement that can reclaim European democracy.
Fifty cultural activists and mediators from across Europe were invited to Culture Lab Europe, an online event to strengthen this movement. They worked on common initiatives that will strengthen European Public Space. In this community conversation on 18 December at 14:00 – 15:30 CET they share their ideas on how to further develop their initiatives, the impact they envision and the challenges they encounter.
The speakers of this community conversation are Roberto Pérez Gayo from Movement Erasmus, Liana Kuyumcuyan and Theo Prodromidis from Permaculture Solidarity, Mike Manicardi from Make the Invisible Visible, Diana Filimon from Fellowship of Questions, Djuro Grdinic from Ecology of care and Jane Wells from Right to Move, Right to Act, Right to do.
