The EU needs a concrete plan to champion culture as a vital element in open, tolerant societies, according to Europe’s leading organised civil society body. The 350-member EESC held a debate with Culture Commissioner Tibor Navracsics and voted through its opinion on the EU’s recent strategy for international cultural relations on Wednesday at its May plenary in Brussels. Culture has an enormous untapped potential for becoming a unifying and mobilising instrument in Europe.

Our first exhibition linked to the Dutch EU Presidency in 2016 is called "Time will change". It consists of two projects: Living colours and Biobased collection. The opening of the exhibition will take place on 16th of March at 6.30 pm and the exhibition will remain open until the 15th of April in the Foyer 6 (JDE building). The exposed student works form a joint exhibition of the Centre of Expertise Biobased Economy (Locatie Avans Hogeschool, Breda) and AKV St Joost Academy of Art & Design, both situated in the Netherlands.

Photo exhibition on Andrzej Wajda, recently deceased Polish film director. Wajda is considered one of Poland’s greatest directors, who over his long career received an honorary Oscar and Palme d’Or. Many of his films were inspired by turbulent wartime and communist history.

Although well known in Poland, Andrzej Wajda is not equally known in Europe and the exhibition would therefore aim at making its work and life known to a wider public. The photos were taken by Czeslaw Czaplinski, world-renowned artist photographer, journalist and documentary film maker.

The exhibition will run from 21 December 2016 to 31 January 2017 – closing event on 25 January 2017.

The event will focus on the role of civil society in preventing radicalisation of young people. The debates will serve to clarify how EU policy-makers can help civil society practitioners to successfully prevent radicalisation. The first panel will cover different elements of anti-radicalisation policy, focusing on what is needed to increase success rates. The second panel will focus on the role of education in preventing radicalisation. Participants will share their view on what can be done to render more effective existing civil society initiatives aiming to prevent radicalisation.
