25 - 29 May

NS Lab 4

Entrée libre
HĂ´tel71, HEAT & H7
70—71 quai Perrache 69002 Lyon
Saturday 28 May
10.30—00.00
Pendant 4 journées, ce programme proposera aux festivalièr·es une nouvelle expérience, complémentaire des autres programmes de Nuits sonores : rencontres, panels, workshops, formations & performances artistiques seront au rendez-vous chaque jour de 14h00 à 00h00 entre Hôtel71, H7 et HEAT.

NS Lab donnera la parole à des artistes mobilisé·es, à des scènes en luttes, de l’Est du continent européen jusqu’au Brésil. Au centre des discussions, une question principale : comment nos moyens d’actions culturels, outils et ressources, peuvent-ils rendre compte de réalités plurielles au sein d’un monde fracturé, produire de l’intelligence collective, des modèles alternatifs, de la solidarité, des incitations à l’action ?

Espace de dialogue, lieu de rencontre et d’empowerment : bienvenue à NS Lab.

talks & interviews

Radio Lab is back! Throughout the event, the radio platform will host various live broadcasts and interviews in an intimate and welcoming setting. Designed in partnership with the media outlet We are Europe and other platforms such as Resident Advisor and the online radio stations that will re-transmit its broadcasts, Radio Lab is giving the floor to artists from the Nuits Sonores festival along with activists, thinkers and other cultural figures. Its programme will explore, in greater depth, many of the subjects addressed during NS Lab, as well as revealing a completely new side to the artists performing at Nuits Sonores.

Avec : Olivier Cachin (journalist, FR).

Within the European Union, some countries feel threatened and are even preparing for a possible invasion by their Russian neighbor. A Russian invasion means the erasure of current and local heritage cultures. We are seeing it in Ukraine where museums, galleries, great buildings and arts venues are destroyed. The feeling of insecurity depends on the proximity of the Russian border. In France, Spain or Ireland, we are not aware of what our European neighbors in Poland, Finland or the Baltic States are experiencing.

Our eyes are turned towards the front line of the Ukrainian conflict, its dramas, but we do not look much at what is happening in these close backgrounds. Through this discussion, we will hear the involvement of cultural actors and artists from these countries to help the Ukrainian people. We will hear their position towards Russian artists and discuss this increasingly widespread feeling of relative "abandonment" of their countries by European countries that do not border Russia.

A way to strengthen the links, in this critical moment, where it is essential to show that we are united and strong.

Moderation : Arnaud Contreras (journalis, FR)

Is the war in Ukraine “our geopolitical awakening”, as Josep Borrell, the High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, told transnational media platform Le Grand Continent*? How are the COVID-19 pandemic, climate change, the rivalry between China and the United States, the parliamentary elections in Hungary, the presidential elections in France and the energy crisis changing the panorama of international geopolitics?

To take a step back from today’s conflicts and measure their impact on the world, NS Lab is inviting the brilliant young editorial team from Le Grand Continent, a journal founded by a geopolitical study group at the École Nationale Supérieure de Paris, to share its analysis of the current situation.

This online journal, born in May 2019, has become a point of reference for strategic, political and intellectual debate in Europe and its growing popularity is contributing to a renewed interest in geopolitical issues.

With : Gilles Gressani (Le Grand Continent, FR), Ramona Bloj (Le Grand Continent, FR), Elena Maximin (Le Grand Continent, FR) , Mathéo Malik (Le Grand Continent, FR)
