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 incomelevens, wellbeing, ethnicity and political affiliation.
Buro EU is the Dutch version of the concept “Office O.N.E.” which stands for Office for New Europeanism. We aim to stimulate people’s awareness of Europe and how they formulate their opinions and ideas on topics related to Europe, their European identity (if existing) and the European Union.
