Being at a specific time, when restrictions hinder the realization of many plans, take away the opportunities for direct meetings and international activities, paradoxically, the need for cooperation is even stronger. The organizers decided to continue the platform of cooperation, which is “BERLIN_cultural_forum_WROCŁAW: The power of cities. Connected in Europe“, also this year. The aim of the project is to build relations between artists, curators and managers from Wrocław and Berlin, and to initiate Polish-German activities.
Virtual exchange of ideas and experiences
During this year’s online meeting on November 27th at 10:00 a.m., which brings together representatives of many institutions and people who create culture from both cities, talks will focus on best practice and a form of international cooperation, as well as lessons learned from recent months. Discussions will revolve around the importance of acting across borders and future forms of action. There is no doubt that the links between the artistic circles of Berlin and Wroclaw have survived the recent difficult months and the temporary closure of borders – now we are starting a new chapter in which we are reshaping and rebuilding relations in a new reality.
Dialogue on international cooperation
Together with the invited guests we will try to answer the question: how to motivate them to act across (closed) borders, also despite the epidemic? We will also discuss the following topics:
– culture during climate change,
– diversity and urban culture,
– hybrid formats of artistic exchanges, online activities and real time.
We invite to listen to several thematic discussions conducted in Wroclaw-Berlin duos connected remotely “live”. Apart from the exchange, analysis and diagnosis of the existing reality, the participants will talk about the future and the mentioned new chapter, and the audience will be able to join in the joint discussion. The discussion will be translated simultaneously, admission is free and participation is free. A detailed program will be available soon. Join the event, HERE.
