DESIGNS FOR EUROPEAN DEMOCRACY
CALL FOR PROJECTS - DEADLINE: 15.02.2018
SMY ARTS 3rd EDITION
SHOW ME YOUROPE ARTS is a contest organized by the students of the Executive Master in communication and European politics at IHECS Academy in Brussels. This year, the 2017-2018 team is organizing the third edition of SMY ARTS: “Designs for European Democracy”. In this third edition, SHOW ME YOUROPE ARTS gives you the opportunity to express your creativity and convey your vision of European democracy by participating in a design competition. The objective of this contest is to make your voice heard as a citizen of the European Union by showing in an artistic way your own representation of European democracy. We invite you to express your vision and show us how the European Union can be closer to the people while it is often criticized for being an isolated bubble detached from its citizens. Join us and help us to (re)connect people with the European Union!
