06 – 15 June, 2023

Each city partner across its 16 European countries will host a cross-sectoral symposium exploring the relationship between the city and its Ulysses inspired ARTS & SOCIETY theme – migration, democracy, mental health, environmental pollution, social co-existence, sexual equality and freedom of speech, amongst others. In June 2024 all partners will gather in Dublin to discuss the outcomes of the city symposia and a statement will be published in late 2024, structured in the form of 309 questions and possible answers (as inspired by episode 17 of Ulysses) regarding the role of Arts & Society in a better future Europe. 

The symposium is an on-going process in Istanbul – meetings, discussions, mini-symposia at, among others, Bosporus University, Topkapi University, Istanbul University, Aydın University.

An inspiring and moving gathering also took place at the Balat Culture Centre, home of the Soroptimist Club.
