From 30 October until 1 November 2020, the Goethe-Institut’s “Freiraum Festival” will put freedom in Europe at the centre of discussion. Join us live online!
How is freedom doing in Europe? In digital and physical formats in Brussels, Berlin and around 20 other European cities, intellectuals, cultural professionals and artists will discuss new perspectives and alliances in Europe on the occasion of the German EU Council Presidency.
What does freedom mean in europe today?Since 2017, the Goethe-Instituts in Europe have been working with over 50 partners on the question of what freedom means in Europe today. Where is it in danger? How can it be strengthened? Free spaces are being restricted by growing nationalist and populist currents, but recently also by contact restrictions, curfews and border closings due to the coronavirus pandemic.
With the digital and local “Freiraum Festival”, the partners of the Freiraum network are now starting open dialogues on the new realities in Europe and on solidarity for a resistant and inclusive society. A multitude of voices and perspectives from all over Europe will be gathered in Brussels and around 20 other European cities.
