Invitation to The European Balcony Project
You are invited to proclaim the European Republic symbolically on 10th of November 2018 at 4 p.m. on a (theatre) balcony, a town square or whatever public place you have access to wherever you might be on 10th of November!
The aim is to spark a broad debate about (European) democracy and what it means to be a citizen. Imagine it as a world-wide politico-artistic flashmob and discussion weekend on democracy! This is how the European slogan, “Unity in Diversity”, could become reality.
Among the supporters are Antonio Negri, Elfriede Jelinek, Navid Kermani, Lorenzo Marsili, Dubravka Ugrešić and many others. As the idea is to promote an event without nations or borders, we are now especially looking to establish cooperations with theatres and citizens in even more countries.
In order to put your company on map andparticipants list send your address/the address of the place where you want to proclaim the European Republic.
