Re Imagine

Re-Imagine Europe is een vierjarig project waarin tien culturele organisaties, waaronder Paradiso, vanuit heel Europa innovatieve programma’s ontwikkelen om kunstenaars en publiek op nieuwe manieren te betrekken bij urgente, sociale en politieke kwesties. Re-Imagine Europe ontwikkelt zo een betrokken publiek dat vorm kan geven aan een eigen visie op de toekomst.

Ieder kwartaal doet Re-Imagine Europe verslag van de voortgang van het project, hieronder het eerste kwartaaloverzicht van 2019.
