IN SEARCH OF A FUTURE OF PROSPERITY AND FREEDOM

WITHOUT UNDERMINING NATURE AND HUMANITY

How technology are you?

Views of the future are often caught up in a binary narrative: “technology good” or “technology bad”. In the 2017 Boyer Lectures, the anthropologist Genevieve Bell  puts forward a different notion: that technology is what humans are. Does this mean that (bio)technology will result in a new species? Find it more about the impact of new technologies on our daily lives in the third edition of Reason and Engage (Redelijk Eigenzinnig).

Difference Day - Speak Freely, Listen Respectfully

3 May 2018

 

In 1993 the United Nations General Assembly declared May 3rd as the World Press Freedom Day to raise awareness on the importance of freedom of the press and remind governments of their duty to respect and uphold the right to freedom of expression enshrined under Article 19 of the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
On the occasion of World Press Freedom Day the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Université Libre de Bruxelles and Erasmushogeschool Brussel, BOZAR, & Evens Foundation, together with other partners such as EPC MPA, EBU, Bertelsmann, la Commission Européenne, l’UNESCO, EED… designate May 3rd as Difference Day. For us celebrating freedom of the press and freedom of expression means honouring people and organisations that make a difference in protecting and promoting these values.
On May 3rd we will start the day with parallel sessions with speakers, films, debates, exhibitions and present the challenges to the freedom of expression and press.

Het is weer zover! In mei strijkt het openluchtfestival Molem ma Belle drie weken lang neer op het Gemeenteplein in Molenbeek.
Van 2 tot en met 27 mei kun je aan de kiosk aan tal van activiteiten deelnemen (open mics, jamsessie, een couscous Baraka, een dialoogtafel i.sm. BRAL over schone lucht, een fietsparade van MolemBike...) of er gewoon gezellig rondhangen.
De kiosk is elke dag open van 12u tot 19u (donderdag marktdag van 8u-13:30u).

Het programma en de activiteiten kun je volgen op facebook. Of loop er gewoon even langs.

“Today we no longer have the right to pretend that we command a unique position from which we can view the truth about the world. We must learn not to judge different areas of knowledge, culture, or art, but to combine them and to establish new ways of coexistence with those who enable us to meet the unique demands of our time.”

Ilya Prigogine & Isabelle Stengers,
Order Out of Chaos: Man’s New Dialogue With Nature, 1984
