European Lab Delphi

12 — 13 OCTOBER 2018 - GREECE


Imagining the culture of tomorrow together

If art creates disruption and thought dares to suggest alternatives, then culture brings us together once more and dreams up new shared destinies.

Driven by this conviction, European Lab Delphi is mobilising young cultural project leaders by offering them concrete tools and a pluralist space in which to debate the culture of tomorrow. The forum is open to creators, enthusiasts, thinkers and cultural actors of all ages, united by their desire to break new ground.

Jointly organised by the French Institute in Greece, Arty Farty and the Greek Ministry of Culture and Sport, this two-day forum is inviting young cultural actors from Greece and elsewhere in Europe to take part in a series of inspiring debates, workshops, media events and exchanges on the future of culture.

A selection of participants from Southeastern Europe, masters in the art of the live spectacle, have been invited by professional network Teatroskop to demonstrate the political power of art and the vitality of intercultural practices in the Balkans.

By creating new networks, exchanging new practices and debating new ideas, European Lab Delphi will question the evolution of Europe’s creative and cultural sectors. The event aims to make the connections required to demonstrate just how vital European culture can be when it emerges from the collision of its diverse component parts. This forum gives the floor to those involved in initiatives that are forging alternative paths, but also challenges their potential to contribute to social transformation.

Taking place at the European cultural centre of Delphi, this forum will shine a particular light on the sociocultural fabric of today’s Greece, by highlighting both shared dynamics and isolated instances of creative resistance.

What are the common dynamics that characterise European culture? How can we encourage young professionals to come together in networks and develop internationally?

How can we use culture to breathe life into our territories? By reactivating abandoned spaces? By mapping out cultural actions and spaces? By encouraging the interaction of new creation and urban heritage?

How can we establish new spaces for creation and debate? What economic model is required? What is the ultimate social aim of such projects?

These are some of the questions that will be explored in Dephi, just a matter of months ahead of a set of European elections that will play a crucial role in shaping the continent’s future.
