2-4 grudnia 2005 - Nowa Agora

W Lizbonie odbywało się spotkanie Europejskiego Parlamentu Kultury. Na sesji plenarnej Parlamentu Krzysztof Czyżewski przedstawił nowy program Pogranicza pt. "Nowa Agora" dotyczący międzynarodowej współpracy w dziedzinie dialogu międzykulturowego. 


Quest for New Ideas and New Intercultural Practices 

A Proposal by the Borderland Foundation for the European Culture Parliament 

NEW AGORA is a response to the challenge of today’s Europe facing complex problems with multicultural society, integration and identity. The program is based on two different spheres of activity: reflective – the Mobile Academy, and practical - the Inter-Cultural Workshop. 

Clearly visible to the naked eye, there is an ongoing social crisis of the European multicultural society. It turns out that a dose of tolerance, which a decade earlier sufficed the peoples of various nationalities, cultures and denominations to co-exist in one body of society, today is no longer satisfactory. Moreover, it appears that European openness towards the otherness has been built, in many cases, on a concept of political correctness understood superficially and absolving the citizens from any attempt at a deeper understanding and closeness to the Other. 

The process of integration and opening of borders needs to be accompanied by growing tolerance, especially if no work on transformation has been carried out in the sphere of culture and mentality. Europeans have too long lived in closed national states, too many of them experienced religious conflicts, too many are entrenched in their own separate cultural identities (which are defended in the name of cultural variety) therefore the opening, experienced by them through European integration, globalization and migration, evokes in them frustration and attitudes radically averse to the Other. 

The title of the program „New Agora” refers to the community space which is not just a sum of separate features, but grows out from the wealth of separateness understood as unique quality. It determines for the cultures their point of juncture, the central place, the place of meetings, common work and dialogue. The borderlands are like the land crossed with the waters of rivers, whose inhabitants must unceasingly build bridges and seek alternative ways of forcing their way from one bank onto the other to be able to live and develop. Today, it is necessary to rephrase the question about the rules and values which should organize life in such communities and about the knowledge and methods of building bridges, i.e. the relations with the Other. 

The „New Agora” program proposes a long-term cycle of activities concentrated on seeking new ideas and on working out of new inter-cultural practices. It will be realized in different places in Europe in the form of a Mobile Academy, engaging outstanding representatives of humanistic thought, and Inter-Cultural Workshops, engaging the young, educators, social activists and artists. Special stress will be laid on the forms of dissemination of the results of the meetings and workshops as well as their continuation in local communities. 

More details concerning the program you can find on the portal “Borderland Archipelago” – www.pogranicze.sejny.pl 

The Borderland Foundation is inviting the European Culture Parliament members to discuss the proposal and to consider a partnership in the realization of the program.
