Living Democracy: Shaping Democracy and Citizenship with Art and Theatre

Democracy is lived in the presence of each other it cannot be a dead piece of paper. To make democracy work we need laws and customs but even more important is the participation of citizens.

Enough citizens need to internalize its values. At De Balie in Amsterdam, we use art and theatre as a tool to enhance and internalize democracy. Being in each other’s presence is essential to the survival of democracy.
