Re:Writing the Future is a digital multi-day festival about artistic freedom, spaces of resilience and international solidarity. Exiled artists from around the world, the International Cities of Refuge Network (ICORN) and cultural institutions in Berlin come together to network and to explore the role of art in turbulent times. How do urban cultures get shaped and revitalized by the experiences of newcomers? How can cultural institutions face the double challenge of growing illiberalism and the ongoing shutdown? And what role do cities play in times of nationalist thinking and the standstill of cultural life? It’s time to come together to forge new alliances for a different path toward the future.
Debates, presentations, lectures, concerts and readings will be streamed live from multiple locations in Berlin. A series of digital workshops will connect artists, cultural practitioners and city officials from around the world. The participation is free and open to the public.
Re:Writing the Future is a festival by those of us who have been forced to leave home because they make art. By those of us who have been working to keep cities open to new voices. And by those of us who offer creative and open spaces to develop new voices.
