Discussion

Power to the People!

The Sardines take over the squares in Italy, the Yellow Vests (Gilets Jaunes) in France dominate the news and Extinction Rebellion’s artistic interventions get worldwide attention: protest movements have been swarming capitals throughout Europe.

What do they have in common and how did they continue to operate under lockdown? How do they intend to shape Europe’s future, like protest movements have shaped Europe in the past? With a.o: Wong Yik Mo (Demosisto) Benjamin Roll (Million Moments for Democracy), Priscillia Ludosky (France, Yellow Vests), Mattia Santori (Sardines), Naomie Pieter (Black Queer & Trans Resistance NL) and Clare Farrell (Extinction Rebellion) we explore how protest movements give a voice to the Europeans who are not heard.

The programme will be moderated by Sophie Derkzen.
