Second Forum on European Culture
The second Forum on European Culture will take place from 31 May to 2 June. The theme for the event is "Act for Democracy!" Artists and thinkers from all over the world meet in Amsterdam to discuss current threats to democracy in Europe. The programme includes debates, films, lectures and other contributions at various locations across the city. Topics include the Brexit, the migration debate, regionalism, and political developments in Poland. The central question is how culture can contribute to the future of democracy in Europe.
In September, the results of the Forum will be presented during a trip on the Europe Endless Express from Amsterdam to Bratislava. The train seats a total of 600 passengers.
The Forum on European Culture is organised by the Dutch cultural centre De Balie together with the DutchCulture centre for international cooperation.
