The Wide Angle Perspective(s) Hub hosted six conversations in Nicosia, Cyprus. The discussion themes addressed the ‘crisis of democracy’ by promoting civic dialogue around key social challenges. These discussions were held with 2-3 invited guests that represent the academic and/or policy maker perspective alongside the artist and/or philosopher perspective. The multidisciplinary approaches to / perspectives on common challenges aimed to bring together a more diverse audience, to create space for new voices to be heard and to connect the two worlds of academia/policy and arts/culture. The conversations were open to the public, who were welcome to join in with comments or questions. The evolution of the conversations was documented by their collaborating artist, Zoe Polycarpou, whose artworks were exhibited at the end of the project.
