Hanna Helavuori participates in Theater for Social Change 1-2.6. in Budapest

FinnAgora co-hosts the panel discussion Theater for Social Change that focuses on two key questions: first, what role can arts organisations play in 2018? Second, how can we amplify the impact and reach of their work? The four panellists are dedicated to creating art with purpose, whether that means promoting inclusion, starting dialogue about social issues, or providing livelihoods for marginal and disadvantaged groups.

The panel discussion is followed by a day of workshops on the theme Theater for Change.  Respected and award-winning experts from across Europe will share their experiences, with special sessions on engaging audiences, co-creating art and inspiring discussion around social issues.
