On 9 May, Europe Day 2022, the project, “Amplify: Make the Future of Europe Yours” will conclude with a final event dedicated to taking action to make the voices of artists, cultural workers, activists and community leaders heard by decision-makers across Europe. Over the last year, Amplify has worked within 12 European countries in order to bring ideas, proposals, recommendations, and concerns about the vision of culture for the (Conference on the) Future of Europe, which will hold its last meeting on that day.
The event, “Amplify in Action,” will gather participants from 12 countries to strategise and execute a live, guerilla-style social media campaign, amplifying their calls to action to policymakers, cultural leaders and EU institutions. Throughout the day, Culture Action Europe will host live sessions, such as artists’ talks, moderated dialogue between Amplify participants and EU decision-makers, and host a digital art exhibition featuring artistic interventions resulting from the Amplify process.
“Amplify in Action” is part of Europe Day 2022, a day full of online and offline activities across Europe. Jointly curated by Culture Action Europe, the major European network of cultural organisations (Brussels) as part of the #Amplify: Make the Future of Europe Yours project, Centre for fine arts - BOZAR (Brussels), the European Cultural Foundation (Amsterdam) and De Balie (Amsterdam), the day offers a wide range of debates, conversations, presentations, a cultural and artistic program and actions to celebrate and shape the future of Europe together, the future that responds to current challenges, aspirations and dreams of Europeans. Both in-person and livestreamed, this full day of action will put arts and culture at the centre of discussions around the future of Europe and will feature the voices of the Amplify participants, covering issues related to climate, youth, equity, diversity and inclusion, values and rights, among others.
Detailed program will be shared soon. You can follow the Europe Day 2022 and #Amplify in Action here.
