Topic 3: Arts and Politics – A Good Match?

Creating a European Public Sphere

Organiser: Cafébabel & n-ost
Format: Open dialogue
Active participants: François Famélie, Babel International; Katharina Kloss, Cafébabel Paris; Sébastien Vannier, Cafébabel Berlin
“We are Europe“ Group Members; Anke Plättner, Journalist
Host: Andreas Bock, Editor, n-ost

A European public sphere is a future necessity, but finds itself still in the foreign politics section of a newspaper. Although many political and social problems have a continental dimension, journalism only too focuses on the national level. We will take a look at the “European Newsroom” through the whole editorial process from a European perspective. The keyword of the workshop is “network”. We will investigate together with the audience how European ideas, stories, and angles are developed, how research in a broad European context can be organized, how the writing – and translation – and the distribution in an European framework can be constructed. Can a European public sphere lead to a common European Narrative?

Alexander Damiano Ricci: Cities for Europe: two suggestions and one (big) paradox

  • Fostering interaction among citizens and among cities becomes key to foster the European integration project
  • To preserve the EU integration project the administrations of urban areas across Europe might prefer to put aside their international interactions and, instead, give priority to “actions” that foster economic and social cohesion with their rural surroundings.
