How can the local artistic endeavours of 11 art students feed into international policy making?



The international project Amplify aims to bring underrepresented voices from the cultural sector to the Conference on the Future of Europe, a citizen-led series of debates about crucial issues shaping Europe’s future.

Participants in 12 European countries design recommendations to EU decision-makers, sharing ideas, hopes, concerns and demands for a shared vision on the future in Europe and highlighting selected issues, that may range from climate protection to the economic and social system.

The Dutch Hub consists of H401 (Amsterdam), Creative Court (The Hague), Het Geluid (Maastricht), and their partners, the BA Photography of the Royal Academy of Art (KABK), The Hague, and Interdisciplinary Arts (iArts) of Zuyd Hogeschool, Maastricht.

What do mental health issues, Chemsex, the gig economy, gentrification, and LGBTQI parenthood have in common? What do the yet unborn have to say about today’s decisions? And what if one is to choose between drowning in the Mediterranean or burning alive in Athens?

Amplify NL is co-funded by the European Parliament. The National Knowledge Institute for Culture Education and Amateur Arts (LKCA), DutchCulture, the European Cultural Foundation, and the Boekman Foundation are involved, sharing networks and expertise.
