ABOUT THE EVENT

Ten years ago, one of our concerns in launching European Alternatives was to contribute to reenergise a continent we felt was incapable of finding the cultural and political resources to renew itself. A glance over the past ten years suggests that at the level of the political institutions this energy for renewal has been lacking. At the same time, a grass-roots politics of contestation and civic invention has been spreading across the continent, and European Alternatives has been networking the dispersed elements of this renewal.

In the framework of THE INDEPENDENT, European Alternatives organises Third Time / Overtime, a project in two chapters happening over a day of debates and actions around the idea of Europe and an illustrated map by artist Marco Raparelli and dedicated to the past ten years of social movements in Europe.

During the day, we will also introduce a new space dedicated to THE INDEPENDENT in the Guido Reni hall– with an artistic wall by Marco Raparelli, a visual artist based in Rome.

This map is an artistic project that will reflect on the transnational political and social movements born after the 2008 financial crisis until 2017, and on the actions that European Alternatives has done in the past decade to connect, support and cooperate with this movements.

From Blockupy in Frankfurt to the Nuit Debout in Paris, from the connection between the European Commons Assembly, to the mobilisations for the right of water across the continent.

An artistic map that will be exhibited in the museum for one week showing the alternative initiatives that have worked to create a different Europe.

The debate will be followed at 7:30 PM by the presentation and screening in the MAXXI Auditorium of the film Io, Daniel Blake, 2016, by Ken Loach, Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival, in partnership with DiEM Voice. Ken Loach will be participating together with Berardo Carboni and Danae Stratou.

Over the past decade, European Alternatives has extended its membership, network and activity across the length and breadth of the continent and beyond.

Today, 10 years on from our first activities at the 50th anniversary of the Treaty of Rome, for the 60th anniversary, we are joining and co-organising major events and initiatives in the city of Rome for the 25th March, working fervently to call together a coalition of citizens and organisations to at once imagine, demand and enact an alternative for Europe.
