The European Balcony Project

For the first time in European history, citizens all over the continent will gather at a single moment in time – 10th of November at 4 p.m. – to spark a broad debate about European democracy and what it means to be European citizens.

From theatres, balconies and public spaces all over Europe, artists and citizens will proclaim a European Republic, discuss, and pave the way for the emancipatory claim of citizens’ equality beyond the nation-state.

The European Balcony Project was initiated by the European Democracy Lab and realized with the support of numerous citizens across Europe. More information can be found on

The European Balcony Catalogue

At the moment we are working on the European Balcony Project catalog, which documents on 220 pages the events of the 10th of November 2018 and collects 120 images of the proclamations as well as texts from all over Europe. This multilingual catalog brings together a wide range of citizens who are interested in a stable and functioning Europe. It connects different ideas about Europe’s future such as a European passport or a European Constitution. It sums up all of your initiatives and activities. Many photos and texts from citizens and institutions referring to the project - from Ph.D. students to EU-commissars - will be published in this catalog in March 2020. We are very happy that the publishing house Theater der Zeit is going to publish it! The number of pieces is limited!
