In September we arranged a conference about creating equal opportunities in the performing arts at the Museum of Work in Norrköping. The aim was to provide a new perspective, give inspiration and highlight the issues of performing arts, work and culture.
The participants discussed two major topics: ”Diversity in cultural life – on stage, festival and in the media” and “Norms and attitudes in society – how do we change them?”
Key speakers were: Jo Verrent, Unlimited, Sophia Alexandersson, ShareMusic & Performing Arts, Janiche Opsahl, Swedish Educational Broadcasting company, Ulla Berg Svedin, The Swedish Union for Performing Arts and Film, Stephen Langridge, The Gothenburg Opera.
Share Music´s WORK-ensemble was a part of the programme and conducted a performance piece from Dance:WORK,together with choreographer Alexander Gottfarb and musician Jonas JonassonConference in Norrköping
