Regenerating Europe through Music

Panel Discussion with Ann Branch, Jordi Pascual, Kerr Robertson and Luigi Virgolin


The European project is currently being challenged by the financial, economic and social crisis. There is great concern about European solidarity and we must ask ourselves do we still value the greater European ideal of a social, cultural and political union?

With the forum taking place in Glasgow, a city that has evolved from an industrial centre to one of Europe’s most creative and cultural centres, the panel will examine if the model of a creative city can be transferred to the wider European context. What can Europe learn from local context? How can local action deliver a European message? Can Europe become a “Creative Europe” (not only in programme terms)? What needs to be done to achieve this?
