VOICES: 4 TIMELY TOPICS,
16 BRIGHT BRAINS & YOU!
After a first round of contributions, we are inviting more Voices to join for a second round! Meet this group of bright brains to share their visions and thoughts with us on four timely topics at the heart of European public debate and media:
Writer Rodaan Al Galidi, artist Bogomir Doringer, actor and theatre director Ruud Gielens, change agent Kirsten van den Hul, journalist, editor and entrepreneur Claude Grunitzky and playwright Laila Soliman.
Journalist Ece Temelkuran, writer Neel Mukherjee, cultural operator Chrissie Faniadis, musician Kinan Azmeh, media-maker Iryna Vidanava, writer/activist David van Reybrouck, and internet activist/university teacher/Nobel Peace Prize nominee Lina Ben Mhenni.
Writers Adbelkader Benali and Jan Brokken.
Moderator/zeitgeist researcher Farid Tabarki invites YOU to join the online debate to voice your opinions...
For every topic, we ask four questions for YOU to address.
THE 4 TOPICS FOR THE NEXT 2 MONTHS ARE:
Certain issues still sit heavy in Europe’s stomach. Are there ways we can aid the digestion?
An emotional (and potentially violent) Balkan walks into a café where there’s an uptight German (still flirting with certain WWII ideologies). Go ahead: scratch that wound!
‘We called upon the labor force and the people came.’
The EU apparatchik is often seen as an administrative monster happily gorging on all of our hard-earned national budgets. Is it time for Brussels to get a make-over?
All contributors, guests and online participants of Voices come with varied backgrounds, and regard the globe as their work place. Their personal and poignant stories form a showcase against generalisations and populist streamlining. After all, only a subtle, nuanced and determined approach can help us find the answers for today’s world.
