Forum on European Culture 2020

This summer, De Balie and DutchCulture proudly presented the third edition of the Forum on European Culture. A big thank you to all our speakers, visitors and funding partners. Without you, we wouldn’t have had such a great online and offline We, the People festival!

Now more than ever, we need the power of artists and thinkers to imagine a better future for Europe. Artists, thinkers and activists from around Europe converged from 17 to 20 September 2020 to examine the notion of a ‘European people’. The festival was held throughout Amsterdam as well as online, as a celebration of European art and culture, with theatre, music, lectures, films, photographs and dialogues.

17 – 20 September 2020
