Privacy, new media and information technology were some of the topics during Europe Day 2019. This year’s theme: Digital Europe – crossing the boundaries?
Digitalisation, is it a blessing or a curse? It was the topic of the day during this year’s Europe Day, organised by DutchCulture together with Creative Europe Desk and Europe for Citizens. The ongoing digitalisation of our society has far-reaching consequences, also for those working in the cultural sector. So should the arts embrace the latest developments in information technology? Or do we need to take drastic measures to protect our privacy, democracy and freedom of expression? The event, which featured various talks and breakout sessions, aimed to shed light on these complex issues through interactive workshops and Q&As with the speakers.
