De Balie + live-stream: Europe Day *22 on May 9
Europe Day is a day celebrating “peace and unity in Europe”, in commemoration of the Schuman Declaration of 9 May 1950. In a festival atmosphere, Europe Day tells the many stories of Europe and imagines a better Europe. It connects the local and the European, presents cultural solutions to European challenges, making our continent more inclusive, more democratic, more culturally aware and a better place to live. This year, peace and unity in Europe are at stake. Putin’s war on Ukraine has brutally reminded us how relevant the founding narrative of the European Union and of Europe Day is. The future of Europe is made right now in our response to the war on Ukraine. Therefore, Europe Day ‘22 is labeled The Future is now!. Europe Day ‘22 is a hybrid event, with live programmes taking place in De Balie and elsewhere, and in ongoing live-stream via europeday.eu. Buy tickets now!

Welke rol zou kunst kunnen spelen in de oorlog in Oekraïne?
25 april 13.30-130: Werkmiddag kunst en oorlog Samen met de Akademie van Kunsten en Turnado’s Rikko Voorberg en Lucas Dols, organiseert The Turn Club een middag vol vragen, inspiratiebronnen en kunst waarmee er op zoek wordt gegaan naar verdieping, verbeelding en perspectief binnen de vreselijke oorlog die nu in Europa woedt. In Oekraïne speelt kunst een grote rol bij het houden van moed, het opbeuren van mensen en het bevestigen van onderlinge verbondenheid.
