Our E-magazine "Eye-to-Eye, The Festival Quarterly" gives the floor to those minds that inform, influence or inspire festival makers and making: the artist, the economist, the philosopher, the urban planner... By assembling various voices and perspectives that speak about our state of the arts and reasons why the arts exist, our life, society, concepts, moments, Eye-to-Eye offers a mosaic of deeper reflections, opinion pieces, personal statements that are unrelated yet related with each other.
Winter edition 2021
We start this decade with the second edition of Eye-to-Eye, The Festival Quarterly. This Winter issue of Eye-to-Eye presents 7 texts of authors sharing their thoughts about their cities, countries and the world, about ethics and aesthetics... but especially about the role that art and culture play in our societies. All are convinced that access to culture is a fundamental right and advocate for more cross-sectoral collaboration to integrate the arts in various sectors such as health, urban planning, etc.
May Eye-to-Eye carry on their voices and resonate with them over the 10 next years.
