TV Free Europe – coming late!

Our TV IN PROGRESS has been launched! A TV in progress, with plenty of absurdity and inspiration, and lots of fishes for a meditation break. If you are bored of livestreamings, tired of online cultural products and all the framed information, try tv-free-europe.eu We planned it to be a series of LIVE EVENTS, but now we decided to put it all back into the box of a classical TV. Later we will break out of it again! [...]

THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING – Mari & Marie’s Early Night Show

Mari @ Marie’s Early Night Show @TRIP Ship Budapest | 5 October, 2019 The show happened in the context of our European Democracy Network and was co-organised with KÖME – Kulturális Örökség Menedzserek Egyesülete One of the main demands of active citizens in Central and Eastern Europe in the late 80s was the right for information and a democratic public sphere. In 2019 we face a narrowing public sphere with increasing restrictions on the freedom of press, assembly and expression in many European countries and beyond. More and more moments emerge reminiscent of the “velvet prison” as writer, politician and human rights advocate Miklós Haraszti called the late Kádár regime. Greetings from the future of 1989, feel the wind of CHANGE! Hungarian Mari and East-German refugee Marie, two young journalists, are time travelling from 1989 to 2019 to host today’s talk show. Join them for an interactive conversation with performative elements around shrinking civic spaces and civic actors’ legitimacy, reputation and freedom fundamentally being challenged. Together, we want to explore how civic spaces are being restricted in European and neighbouring countries; what are the similarities and differences across Europe; how we as civil society can stand in solidarity with each other and learn from each others‘ reactions and actions against these threatening tendencies in our specific local contexts.
