London-based artists from all corners of Europe have come up with inspiring reflections, messages and strategies on how to activate citizenship to build a real European democracy founded on the principles of sustainability and social and environmental justice.
The artworks address issues surrounding political participation in Europe, asking why it is important today, what are the alternatives to the current policies running counter to democracy, equality, social and environmental justice; and what are the different forms of political participation available for European citizens today.
There will be a programme of collective learning and mobilising activities around the selection of visual, digital, sculpture, audio and performative pieces - art is not just contemplated or appreciated but also explored, interpreted and discussed.
The purpose of this 2 weeks long event is to stimulate debate about how to improve European democracy, and to encourage participation in the upcoming elections to European Parliament, while showcasing the existing alternatives.
