We invite you to the CULTURE AND FUTURE debate, which will take place on 10 September, 18:00 in the Working Stage (Grunwaldzka 22 in Poznan). One of the guests will be the director of Malta Festival Poznań, Michał Merczyński.
Here is a description of the event organizer.
The pretext and starting point for the interview is announced on 24 August, a manifesto of artists, workers and participants of the culture of Independent Culture. After July walks and Light Chains and August picnics, it was time for September to move to the Work Stage to continue the meetings around the fundamental themes.
At the 2016 Congress of Culture Przemysław Czaplinski threw the slogan "Kingdom for narratives". Narratives, which would combine a multitude of diverse social and cultural initiatives, and the richness of individual and collective identities in the nature of the whole, the common thing. Simply, tales of the Commonwealth giving the opportunity to be together and not at all impossible to be apart. Iwona Kurz summed up the Congress of Culture as a source of inspiration to use the upcoming anniversaries important for Polish society: the 200th anniversary of Tadeusz Kosciuszko's death, the 100th anniversary of the avant-garde, and finally the 100th anniversary of regaining independence. It is precisely for this anniversary referred to the proclamation of 24 August independence movement, whose signatories call for the socialization of Independence Day and organize them in a civic way. Let's talk about whether independence is a good topic, and a movement such as Culture Independent Mechanism to regain the capacity to speak about itself in the way it appealed during the Congress of Culture.
The meeting will be the first of a series of debates "Culture and the Future", preceding the Forum of the Future of Culture, which will take place in the autumn at the Powszechny Theater in Warsaw.
Participants will be: Elżbieta Korolczuk, Przemysław Czaplinski, Michał Merczyński, Franciszek Sterczewski
