As a part of the My!Europe project, the Danish Cultural Institute in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania will host a debate for the creative minds and others interested in discussing the refugee and immigration crisis in Europe – from the artist’s perspective. Title: ImmiCreation.

The organisers’ idea is that while immigration is discussed passionately all over Europe in the news, on social media, and in the street, art could help us view issues in a new light and turns things on their head.
But how could they do it, - and should they, actually, use their artistic talent to convey opinions and affect public opinion?
The debate will be set up between two Danes and two Latvians:
From the Danish side: Christian Have, an expert on branding and storytelling, and Henrik Hartmann, one of the leading lights in Danish Theater and founder of the Contact-Foundation, which is working with documentary theatre all over the world, including Latvia.

From the Latvian side: Ivars Drulle, sculptor and cartoonist, and Andris Gauja, film director, internationally known for his documentary “Family Instinct”. And in addition there will be a public debate.

Moderator will be Zane Peneze, a journalist and film maker.

The event will take place Friday 17.00, October 16 at NABAKLAB, Zigfrīda Annas Meierovica bulvāris 12, Rīga, and is open for all.

The My!Europe project is a project under the EU European for Citizens Program, and consists of 8 European conferences, each with their own topic as a starting point for debate on how to create a more democratic and social EU.
