Buro EU is a mobile pop-up office, developed to activate and boost the European dimension of democracy and citizenship in local communities. We use innovative dialogue and listening techniques and artistic tools to stir up conversations and collect stories of (European) identity in local communities.
Buro EU was launched in november 2017 to gather the stories of inhabitants of Amsterdam North in particular, as this neighborhood is characterised by a large gap between groups of inhabitants when it comes to incomelevels, wellbeing, ethnicity and political affiliation.
Since then, it has seen various editions, travelling to different cities around the Netherlands in 2019 and in 2020 we will focus our listening efforts on youth, asking them about their point of view on sustainability and the role of Europe. Underneath, an example of our work as Buro EU in 2018, with English subtitles.
