Introducing DiEM Voice, our new art platform
Wed 03, 2017, Articles
As part of this weekend’s launch in Rome of our European New Deal with a three-day festival of DiEM25 activities, we will also launch DiEM Voice, an on-going art platform that will serve as an integral part of our movement’s future.
For us, art plays an integral role in determining not only the means (propagation) but also the ends of our movement; not only the medium for conveying the policy/message but also for shaping the policy/message itself. DiEM Voice aims to facilitates a democratic dialogue between people-participants across Europe, using art.
DiEM Voice will make its first appearance at our event “The Time Of Courage” on March 25, in the form of a project that will be powered by the audience. Throughout the evening we will capture questions directly from people at the event and those watching it online – questions that might not have been expressed otherwise. We will print these questions and gradually fill up the foyer area of Teatro Italia. As the event concludes and the participants leave the auditorium, they will all be confronted with these questions.
The next day, Sunday, March 26, marks the official launch of DiEM Voice. We will participate in a pioneering cultural event in Rome’s MAXXI contemporary art museum, alongside some of the most interesting voices today in politics and art. Our coordinator Danae Stratou will give a presentation of DiEM Voice.
We will also screen the Palme d’Or and BAFTA-award winning movie “I, Daniel Blake”, made by DiEM25 Advisor Ken Loach.
