2 juni 14:30 - 16:30
Iepen UP/ LF2018 is dit jaar bij het Forum on European Culture in De Balie met “The Art of Regionalism”!
Jacky Wylie (director National Theatre of Scotland) | Albert Heta (director Stacion, Centre for Contemporary Art, Prishtina)
| Sjoerd Bootsma (Leeuwarden European Capital of Culture 2018)
This year, the Frisian city of Leeuwarden is in the spotlight as the European Capital of Culture – with their strong regional identity as a key theme in the programme. Just as Catalonia, Scotland and other important European regions, Friesland proudly distinguishes itself from national culture.
It is often said that Europe is a collection of regions, not nation states. What roles do cultural regions play, and are likely to play, in the future? Are we actually moving towards a ‘Europe of the Regions’?
Together with artists from a number of such proud regions, such as Jacky Wylie (director National Theatre of Scotland), Albert Heta (director Stacion, Centre for Contemporary Art, Prishtina ) and Sjoerd Bootsma (Leeuwarden European Capital of Culture 2018), we discuss the strength of the regional culture and its influence on the nation state and on Europe in the future.
This programme is a collaboration with Leeuwarden-Fryslân, European Capital of Culture 2018.
This programme is a part of the second edition of the Forum on European Culture: “Act for Democracy!”. At a time when the future of Europe is more uncertain than ever before, we bring together leading and inspiring artists, thinkers, economists and politicians during a 4-day interdisciplinary programme to discuss Europe and its future.
