[Nettime-nl] worldchat 20 april

Beste Nettime,
Ik werk bij De Balie en morgen (20 april) organiseer ik een worldchat. Het concept is dat we middels chat en gasten in De Balie en over de hele wereld gaan chatten en skypen.
Op www.generatie7080.nl meer informatie. En hieronder het persbericht wat zo door te sturen is.
Veel groeten,
David Glas

Fighting for tolerance!

7080: Worldchat | Liteside festival


 De Balie | Kleine-Gartmanplantsoen 10 Amsterdam 

20 april | 21.30 - 00.30 hrs. | language: English


The 7080: Worldchat fights for global tolerance. On April 20 the greater theme of the 7080: Worldchat will be the difficulties that an individual who was born in a different culture than in the one in which he or she lives experiences, not to be judged by the prejudices that exist about that culture. Sometimes it's almost as if every Arab has to defend himself for the fundamental points of view of some imams. Many other examples exist. 

Will generation7080 be more tolerant than its parents? What is the role of art to overcome cultural prejudices? What is the relationship of the media to these prejudices: can they fight them? Do they shape them? How do young activists in Lebanon, Iraq, or Israel fight for freedom, tolerance and emancipation?

7080: Worldchat brings together in the Balie and on the internet writers, artists, politicians, philosophers and activists. In the Balie will be present: Bojana K. Grabas (sociologist), Sameena Khan (designer, creator of theatre), Rodhan Al Galidi (poet, writer), Susan Youssef (director of films) and Fatemeh Fattahi (artist). Many others will be present on the chat. 


To join the 7080: Worldchat : visit the Balie at April 20 or log in from 9.30pm. Send an  email to 7080@balie.nl <mailto:7080@balie.nl>  receive a log in password.
