Acting for life

ACTING FOR LIFE LIÈGE


The programme of this first edition of AGIR POUR LE VIVANT LIÈGE will alternate, during three days, from 28 April to 30 April, moments of reflection, meetings and sharing: shows, debates, round tables, night of the common, walks, concerts, meals.

Living in the city/Cultivating urbanity

This initiative aims to set up a common time of reflection and action for the city and culture with the objective of putting culture back at the centre of the city's concerns, as a vector of connection and identity. Thus, living in the city also and above all means occupying and animating its cultural spaces in order to bring together, decompartmentalise, question our practices and activate the dynamics of the collective and the common. What do we have in common? What city or cities do we want to inhabit and build together? It is more essential than ever to come together and (re)create spaces for meetings, debates, reflections and sharing to imagine together the common future of the human and the urban.
