>>DiEM25 Donations Campaign
For the upcoming event “Here and Now: A Creative Vision for Europe” to take place at the Platform Theatre of Central Saint Martins on 10th October, 2018.
From its beginning, DiEM25 placed arts and culture at the heart of its vision of a democratic Europe. DiEM Voice, the artistic and cultural branch of DiEM25, takes this mission forward: dedicated to developing a new vision for culture in Europe and providing a platform for its expression.
>> Kicking Off the Effort: The CSM Event
On 10 October, “Here and Now: A Creative Vision for Europe” will bring Srećko Horvat, Danae Stratou, Yanis Varoufakis, Bobby Gillespie, Rosemary Bechler, and Aurelie Fillipetti together at the Platform Theatre of Central Saint Martins to consider the role of culture in the fight for the future of Europe. The evening will include a performance, presentation, and discussion, and will invite citizens to help shape a new politics of culture for Europe and beyond.
The event will also be the platform for the presentation of the movement’s first draft policy paper for culture: consulted and created directly with the movement’s friends and members. We shape the new politics of culture, first and foremost, through our own engagement.
>> Making it Happen: Donations & Costs
DiEM25’s efforts are funded directly by citizens who refuse to let Europe be overtaken by cynicism and despair. This innovative and timely event by DiEM25 and DiEM Voice in London is no exception. The costs we need to cover through donations are travelling and accommodation costs, as well as the technical event costs which come up to just over £ 2,000.
We also note that the event would have been impossible without the support of Central Saint Martins, University the Arts London, who have very generously provided space, logistical support, and staff input.
