Despite living in and experiencing democracy every day, local government is rarely associated with democracy and politics. And it is here, at this level, that everything promisingly begins, immediately ends or simply comes to a standstill. It works or it falls apart. There is no politics without local government and there is no democracy without its local participants – councilors, officials and residents. The Duży Pokój Workshop, the Ethnographic Workshop Association and the Museum of Warsaw are organizing a meeting with members of the Warsaw City Council from two different political options. They will talk about their work and about democracy in local government. Do political disputes influence the shape of local politics? Do we want them to or rather not? Is it sometimes the case that a decision could be taken jointly and for the good of the residents, but club colors do not allow councilors to vote in unison? What can be expected from members of the Warsaw Council in this regard? _ The meeting will be moderated by Róża Rzeplińska, President of Association 61, which runs the website MamPrawoWiedziec.pl.
The event will be streamed on the “Facebook profile of Museum of Warsaw":https://www.facebook.com/muzeum.warszawy/.
