Culture after Brexit is a British Council programme about the future of the cultural relationship between the UK and the European Union after Britain exits the EU. Through a series of essays and open events, we are inviting artists, arts professionals and policymakers to contribute to a discussion about redefining the relationship between culture, contemporary society and democracy in Europe.

As part of the programme, acclaimed theatre critic for The Guardian, journalist and writer Lyn Gardner is visiting Greece in order to explore the local cultural scene, write about it and reflect on its relationship with Europe and the UK in the Culture after Brexit blog.

Lyn Gardner will take part in an open discussion with the public at Bios, where she will talk about the impact of the economic crisis on culture and the arts, the new reality to be shaped after Brexit and the political shift in Europe, as well as the future of theatre and performing arts.

Journalist and theatre critic Iliana Dimadi and stage director and performer Euripidis Laskaridis will join her.

Admission is free:

Lyn Gardner is Theatre Critic for The Guardian, Associate Editor of The Stage and an author of children’s books. @lyngardner
