This issue of Are We Europe magazine finds itself at the intersection of movement and identity. Does who we are depend on where we are, or where we come from? From a portrait of a country stricken by brain-drain, to an inside account of Europe's biggest far-right youth organization, to photo-journalism capturing Europe’s new borders.
Europe has much more to offer other than supporting acts. In 2014, research by Spotify provided the first piece of evidence of what many Europeans are used to experiencing first-hand: when it comes to music production, Europe is actually punching above its own weight. Globally, of the top ten countries with emerging musical talent, eight were European. That’s why we partnered up with the Dutch Eurosonic Noorderslag festival and created stories around twelve award-winning European artists whose success has traveled beyond their own national borders.
INTRODUCING OUR NEW BRAND
Three years ago we started Are We Europe. With every new magazine, our image of what that could look like grew more detailed. Now, our project is solidifying into something that has a real place in people’s lives. That deserves a brand that can grow with it.
The Ocean Between Us
We dive into the social, historical and cultural forces that have shaped the past, present and future of transatlanticism. These articles, reflections, and essays shed light on the ways that Europe and the United States remain incredibly entwined—even if those threads are beginning to fray.
In this series, we travel to the far corners of Europe to discover the untold stories of the continent. This time we take you to Moldova, where a movement of young activists fights for democracy and a better future.
Change often happens without much noise — gradually, unnoticed, or already forgotten. That’s why, in this first issue of AWE magazine, we shed light on the silent (r)evolutions of the past, present and future: from the women’s march on Versailles, to a media revolution in Turkey, to a Danish island community spearheading sustainability.
Because the loudest revolutions are often silent.
