The agenda for Stream Europe 2018 is in your hands. There are six session times a day, hosted in nine different meeting spaces. Each session runs for 1 hour (give or take) and all sessions are led by you, the Stream Europe participants. Here's how it works:

  1. Before Stream - Share your idea - Create a New Discussion by clicking on the blue ‘add idea’ button on the left of this page
  2. Before Stream - Invite others to join you - you can see the participants list at the Participants page.
  3. At Stream - Book a slot - when you arrive on site, write your discussion on the Big Boards

The Stream Europe team is on hand to help. Please get in touch if you'd like to talk an idea through before posting, or would like help finding some co-hosts.

What do borders mean in the 21st century?

The great wave of nationalism that has taken over politics in many parts of the world seem to be strengthening the concept of borders around countries. Having travelled to China and Israel this year, and living in Brexit Britain, while owning a passport of a country where I've never resided, and growing up on an island split into two countries (Haiti and DR), borders fascinate and puzzle me. Borders are intended to delineate where one government's control ends, and another begins. I understand that control can be important to maintain stability and stimulate economic growth. In the museum industry, we often speak of the "porous" museum - letting ideas flow in and out freely so that it reflects the world outside its walls. Could this be a term we could apply to borders? What would a "porous" nation look like?
