12-16 Nov: Citizenship Academy in The Nation Room – Embassy of No-Land

The association Citizenship Academy presents “Occupy the Space- Make it Public”, a programme of workshops, debates, screenings and performances at The Nation Room-Embassy of No-Land.

What is the use of large political protests? How hard is it to produce our own food and energy? Is communal building the solution to the housing shortage? Do we exercise human rights in our daily life? Can civil society save culture or is that solely the State’s obligation?

Dedicated to the promotion of active citizenship, democratic values and participation and sustainable development, the association Citizenship Academy proposes a week of sharing, dialogue and empowerment activities in The Nation Room – Embassy of No-Land, part of the exhibition “The Real and Other Fictions”.
