JOINT FUTURE

Slavonic Creativity – mutual affection and common devotion leading to a Joint Future: Slavonic Revival in the 21st century based upon the Unity of Arts, Science and Innovation

The architects of SLAVONIC EUROPE think globally, they act nationally, digitally and network-based. They draw on well defined objects and chose concrete examples. They include into their scope of activity all creative domains, which push the civilisation further and constitute together a cultural space based on concrete phenomena linked by mind & emotion: ΓΝΩΘΙ ΣΕΑΥΤOΝ – Know thyself – a process of self-awareness takes off and results, eventually, in the essential civilisatory dimension of HUMANITY as mutual respect and mutual solidarity among human beings.

Nobody can create anything lasting and reliable without existing roots, ardent devotion and human affection: Without affection there is no devotion and without devotion there is no durability. Devotion and affection, however, can only arise where human mind encounters concrete objects rooted in the material world. The only answer to this causal chain is CULTURE.

Culture comprises all of them: It builds an arch between roots, devotion and affection via its multiple appearances in form of Arts, Science and Innovation – an iridescent unity which mirrors the variety and plenty of life. An arch of suspense between mind & emotion. The most complete and powerful appearance of culture, however, is ART.

It is for this reason that the SLAVONIC REVIVAL in the 21st century starts with a central event, which will be yearly recurrent and which will represent the artistic catalysator of the rise of the Slavs in Europe as well as a bridge to other cultures and nations – an artistic focus and unique opportunity for dialogue leading to the trinity of Arts, Science and Innovation:

SLAVONIC WAVE 2020

Slavonic Cultural Festival Project for Brussels

Project Initiator & Coordinator: SLAVONIC EUROPE Foundation (FP)

The SLAVONIC WAVE 2020 Cultural Event project, initiated and conceptually developed by the SLAVONIC EUROPE Foundation (FP) in Brussels, is inspired by the desire to bring closer to the Brussels citizens the culture and the mentality of the SLAVONIC PEOPLE through arts, craftsmanship and social events.

It is the outset of a special relation of the Slavs to Brussels – the most international city in Western Europe – and to the Western Culture itself.

This project is based on our conviction that it is through culture and social exchange that the human beings develop further their degree of HUMANITY and that it is via these means that strong bridges are made between people, regions and even continents.

The SLAVONIC WAVE 2020 Festival in Brussels will consist of two distinct parts and based on two pillars presenting the richness and the diversity of the Slavonic culture: The past and the present – the roots & the crown. It will start with SLAVONIC EASTER Event in April 2020 kicking off the SLAVONIC WAVE, which will culminate in the SLAVONIC EMOTION Event in June 2020. Both events – although fully organised and complete in itself – will be interconnected and represent two sides of one medal, bringing the SLAVONIC WAVE of Culture – of Peace and HUMANITY – as a messenger of glad tidings to the Brussels international public.
