Already on Monday evening, we introduced the participants to a text which has been exclusively written for the Waves of Democracy Summer Academy by Danish writer Kasper Norgaard Thomsen. “Among the Titans” – based on the story of the tower of babel – aimed at inspiring the participants on reflecting upon their idea of a common European narrative and how this could be presented in a creative performance.

In no time, we had the attention of everyone sitting in the surrounding terraces of the cafés, as well as passers-by. We were more than happy to also welcome some of our new Syrian friends whom we met in the Asylum Center on Wednesday. They even performed a beautiful Syrian song for us and the audience.
