About this Event

SYNERGIZE! Culture in Democratic Action. The Socio-Political Impact of International Networks and Cultural Relations

Conference, Tuesday, Nov 12, 19, 10:00-18:00

www.nrw-kultur-international.de

>> Please select ONE workshop when registering for the conference. As the number of participants is limited, we recommend to register as soon as possible <<

What is the impact of international cultural relations on a democratic coexistence? Within these relations, how important is the personal encounter? And how can we expand intercultural networks, making them possible for everyone?

In our times, global diversity is becoming more and more visible and accessible through the internet, digital technologies and expanding infrastructures.

On the other hand, tendencies of exclusion, polarization and censorship are radically increasing. It seems more important than ever for art and culture to reinforce pluriversality and to self-empower.

We are looking forward to interrogate the relevant questions of our time together with cultural operators from North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany and the world through lectures, open panel discussios and workshops within the framework of this International Conference SYNERGIZE!
