Changing Europe, Changing Arts #4
In a series of four public sessions chaired by columnist-author Bas Heijne, EUNIC Netherlands will examine how cultural diversity is manifesting itself within today’s sector. The focus is especially on the grey area between the community arts and social arts on the one hand and high art on the other hand.
Challenging and enriching
Examples from various European countries demonstrate how our multicultural society can enrich culture and the arts. The central questions were: what makes the projects at hand so special; who attended these events; what was their general impact on the visitors; which questions were raised, which debates were triggered, and which changes in society were brought about? Other pivotal questions: which effect is the multicultural society having on the artists and event organizers themselves and on the artistic choices they are making?
