Why is culture so important?
This week we’re launching our 20th anniversary poster campaign in the Netherlands! We’ve put some provocative questions out there to start a conversation…
Because as the world becomes more complex, more intertwined and at the same time more fractured, the need for open cultural exchange and understanding is more urgent than ever.
Why is culture important to you?
We’d love to hear your thoughts on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or via email #PCF20
