In the run-up to the European Parliamentary Elections, Culture Action Europe together with the cultural and creative sectors advocates for a future for culture and for Europe that is democratic, diverse, fair, free, human, inclusive and vital.
As part of our EP elections campaign, CAE has launched a podcast series dedicated to discussing key cultural topics with influential figures in Europe and culture. Our intention is to discover their views on fundamental questions relating to culture’s contribution to Europe and to foster awareness among EU citizens, empowering them to make informed decisions as voters in the upcoming parliamentary elections.
In this episode of Salon Culture podcasts, our colleague Sophie Dowden interviews Luca Jahier, President of the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC). They discuss vital topics, emerging from our campaign appeal, that call for a stronger recognition of the cultural dimension of the European Union and culture’s contribution to Europe. As Mr. Jahier notes at the beginning of this interview, “the first step is to recognise the force of the cultural actors in any level for what they can bring to society.”
