Brexit (c) Bozar Brexit (c) Bozar

More than two years after the citizens of the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union the future relationship between the UK and the EU remains unclear. In the spirit of proactive and responsible global citizenship, a number of steps have been taken to clarify what that relationship could or should be once BREXIT negotiations have been completed, while fully respecting the results of the vote to leave on June 23, 2016.
On Monday 24 September the Centre for Fine Arts of Brussels (BOZAR), in partnership with the European Cultural Foundation and the British Council, assembled leading cultural workers, directors, artists, and European federations assembled to raise their voices on Brexit and its potential impact on their fields: from music to design, audiovisual, architecture, visual arts, performing art, or publishing.
Coming from all over the EU, participants clearly expressed their concerns that their interests may have been overlooked, and that the power of these sectors has been underestimated.
The Polish Institute in Brussels invited Mrs. Marta SORDYL, Community Engagement Officer at Lambeth Early Action Partnership (LEAP) in London.

Her work includes liaising with local residents in planning appropriate action to enable and generate community aspiration and confidence. Over the last 5 years she has developed a number of successful projects focused on working around capacity building with the Polish and non - Polish speaking residents in the London Borough of Lambeth. Marta is currently working with Stockwell Partnership, a UK based charity that aims to improve the quality of life in the local neighbourhood through the undertaking of social projects.
