We invite everyone online to join and contribute in collectively reflecting on today’s role of artists and intellectuals.
Borrowing the concept from the jazz world, a Jam Session is an event, a web site, an open space, a tool, a discussion and more all wrapped into a 72- hour exchange of ideas on issues that are relevant. Already experienced by different types of organisations (from the United Nations to IBM), a Jam Session is organised to facilitate discussions among participants around “always evolving” topics, with the goal of collectively tackling them in a defined period of time.
Are artists and intellectuals obliged to engage in society and politics today Why?
For 72 hours (April 27-29), we will encourage voices and thoughts to be mixed and exchanged. By everyone who wants to contribute.
The outcome: a collective understanding of the “state of the art”, collecting inputs from different parts of Europe. And, in addition, a new experiment for a truly dynamic European conversation in an historical moment in need of deeper connectivity.
