Alliance of Academies. A Conference of European Cultural Institutions

Opening evening: Thursday, 8 October 2020
Akademie der Künste, Pariser Platz 4, 10117 Berlin

Conference – Lectures – Musical intervention

The Akademie der Künste advocates for the freedom of the arts and calls upon other art academies and relevant cultural institutions across Europe to form an “Alliance of Academies”. The network will aim to preserve the cultural diversity of European societies and counteract nationalistic tendencies as well as any form of censorship in cultural policy. A joint manifesto articulates this stance and practices political responsibility as a commitment for the future.

The “Alliance of Academies” can serve the participating institutions in actively supporting each other and standing up for the common goal – an open and democratic Europe.

The opening event on Thursday evening, 8 October 2020, is open to the public.
