Although very successful, for financial constrains ITE will pause the series of lectures in 2018. Hopefully will restart in 2019.
Cultural issues in Europe
Open lectures about the actual cultural-political issues of the EU. Every 2 months – 6 lectures per year. ITE and its local partner – the Szent Kristóf Foundation – in Budapest started the series of events in 2015 and decided to continue them based on the constant interest until the end of 2017.
The participants of the lectures were looking answers to actual cultural issues and concerns how to defend the cultural heritage of nations in Europe – not only in context of multiculturalism and migration but of cultural-political oppression, forced assimilation, lack of freedom of speech, etc.
The lecturers – among them MEP-s, MP-s provided actual hot issues to the audience, for example the differences between the reality and the imagined cultural diversity, the clash of civilizations or protection of cultural heritage in line with the written principles of the EU.
Restart in 2019
Unfortunately, the program of ITE has not received grant for the year of 2018, the lectures will be paused but the organisers are already planning the next working year. See you soon in Budapest.
