Europe is undergoing a period of unprecedented changes, with a significant influx of migrants, budget cuts, and issues with social inequality. At a time of transformation, mobility and cultural networks can be a catalyst for social cohesion – the glue that holds society together. Now more than ever, the EU has to take action. Now is the time to adapt to a new context which is more complex but also richer.
This session aimed to present and reflect on some of the European initiatives, measures and projects that are shaping and transforming our 21st century culture: the digital culture. It also sought to provide fresh perspectives on the possibilities and challenges of artistic mobility and cultural networks in Europe and across the globe.
