Permanent Questions Public discussion concerning 'Prejudice'

Read more

Two of democracy's core values are equity and justice, yet both are vulnerable to prejudice. To better understand prejudice's impact on everyday decisions, whether institutional or personal, Permanent Questions (Charlotte Van Buylaere and Sue Spaid) are presenting discussion sessions conducted by local scholars whose research addresses prejudice's impact on art and society.

Permanent Questions facilitates forums where participants feel free and safe to discuss otherwise sensitive issues. Prior to discussions, relevant texts will be posted to Beursschouwburg's website so participants can familiarize themselves with the topic at hand. Questioners will be rewarded with a free drink!
