The Bundeszentrale für politische Bildung and the Goethe-Institute are happy to invite for a panel debate with the theme ‘Radio as Cultural Hub’ as part of PRIX EUROPA 2018. 

Public broadcasters have always played an important role in the cultural life of Europe. They are a platform were cultural programmes are produced and, as a result, become a cultural asset by themselves. However, due to a dramatic change in the media landscape as well as the political climate, the future of public broadcasters as cultural asset is uncertain. What significance have public broadcasters as cultural producers in the European societies? How could strategies for their maintenance look like? Those and other questions will be discussed from a variety of industry experts.
