Workshop: Reshaping the possible Finland, Helsinki 15 November
How do we create spaces of dialogue and deal with conflict? In what ways could art and art institutions contribute to a more humane and manifold society? How can we include different views and the social know-how of the current cultural diversity to reform the Finnish society?
This workshop explores the possibilities of shaking up the accustomed patterns and creating new co-operations. The form of the event as well as the content strives to find new forms for better communication and awareness.
Participants will form multi-disciplinary groups and work creatively with urgent issues of their choice after an interactive panel discussion with Giovanna Esposito Yussif (curator, art historian), Mikaeli Langinvainio (CEO, conflict resolution expert) and Sepideh Rahaa (multidisciplinary artist) including a comment from Mia Luhtasaari (TRUST project, Ministry of Justice). The focus is on various modes of presence, practice, collaboration and dialogue between different stand points to find unexpected views.
The workshop is open for all. In particular, it is suitable for those working in the fields of immigration and multiculturalism, development and global education, as well as art and culture.
