Program 2021

There is no life without dialogue

Convinced of the need to create space for reflection and critical resistance, we are launching a new season of the Trobades & Premis Mediterranis Albert Camus, to be held in Menorca during the spring 2021 entitled “There is no life without dialogue”.

During the first Trobades in 2017, we reflected on the search for a homeland, an Ithaca understood as that distant harmonious land far from where man feels exiled.

In the second Trobades in 2019, inspired by Camus, we explored paths of rebellion. But rebellion can lead to violence and, to avoid this risk, Camus intensifies his humanism: “To serve the future of the world, we must employ the morality of dialogue against the morality of murder”, because “the time has come, for Europe and the world, to unite the forces of dialogue against the ideologies of power”.

And from that sentiment arise the III Trobades Mediterrànies Albert Camus, which will take place in Sant Lluís on Saturday 19 and Sunday 20 June 2021.

Prior to the Trobades, on Friday, 18 June, we will celebrate the Albert Camus 2020 Mediterranean Awards Ceremony at the Teatre Principal de Maó, which could not be held during 2020 due to the pandemic.
