The Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands would like to cordially invite you to a debate with Pieter De Buysser, a Dutch-speaking writer who lives and works in Brussels.
In his work, Pieter De Buysser ponders over and challenges contemporary everyday life. While being highly alert to current social, political and human issues, he constantly reflects and questions our day-to-day presence. What does he think about the recent events in Europe and his neighbourhood Molenbeek? How does he, as an artist, perceive the functioning of this Brussels multicultural district? Is working with the local community a way to diffuse tensions and reduce polarization in society? And what role can the creative environment play in the lives of people who have never been to the theatre? Pieter De Buysser will also talk about his novel The Stonecutters, the Czech translation of which will be published in June by Argo.
Free of charge
The discussion will be moderated by Ondřej Hrab.
This project is part of the 2016 Dutch-Flemish cultural cooperation programme in the Czech Republic.
