Die Veranstaltung wird von der Heinrich Böll Stiftung Schleswig-Holstein in Kooperation mit der Landeshauptstadt Kiel und dem Interreg-Projekt UrbCultural Planning angeboten. Fokus des Urban Labs ist die Rolle von Kunst und Kultur bei Transformationsprozessen von Städten: Welche Rolle können Kunst und Kultur dabei spielen, welche Methoden wurden entwickelt und welche Strategien der Verbreitung dieser Methoden gibt es dazu bereits im Ostseeraum?

Only when people are in a position to use their own creative potentials, which can be enhanced by an artistic imagination, will a change occur [...] Art can and should strive for an alternative that is not only aesthetically affirmative and productive but is also beneficial to all forms of life on our planet.“ (Rasheed Araeen, Ecoaesthetics. A Manifesto for the Twenty First Century)

Die Veranstaltung findet ab 14:00 Uhr online und auf Englisch statt.

Let’s talk and think about...

Is art and culture dispensable?
What does it do to our society that for more than a year now the cultural sector has effectively been shut down in relation to citizens?
We miss art and culture!
Not only because we miss the enjoyment. There is much more to it than that.
