Cultural versus National Borders

Europe Now | Europe Next Encounters

At the heart of Europe Now | Europe Next are a number of Encounters between artists, writers, cultural operators and the general public.

In live and online Encounters, 200 selected core participants start the debate with initial artistic contributions, a range of articles, images, video and sound pieces. Reflecting on the Europe of today (Europe Now) and envisioning a Europe of tomorrow (Europe Next), they try to overcome stereotypes and prejudices. Aiming at a transnational dialogue between people from the old, new and prospective member states of the European Union and their neighbours, the live Encounters take place in Poland, Romania, Hungary and the Ukraine the online Encounters everywhere on the Net! Join the Encounters by contributing your own artistic work or discussing in the forum.
