Is it true that Europe is under a cultural crisis? Does it need changes and new values? May culture be a part of any solution for contemporary societies – bringing a true change within the European reality overfilled with fear?
We will dedicate the 3d meeting within the cycle on connections between art and politics to the issue of civil society. Through summing up the undertakings carried out during the European Culture Congress by some selected non-governmental organizations, we will try to answer the questions: how much politics is usually involved within cultural animation and is the cultural animation a true concern of the contemporary politics? The discussion will start with a query of how the idea of ‘civil society’ in Poland may find itself within the ongoing struggle between power and culture.
