#StopHatredNow 2019

– Allyship and solidarity

Tools for inclusive, anti-racist and feminist action 13.–16.5.2019

The field of arts requires more tools in order to answer the needs of a changing world. #StopHatredNow is an intercultural and anti-racist platform organised in collaboration with several art and intercultural organisations. The platform strives to create discourse and offers tools to create a more inclusive, diverse and feminist art field.

This year's #StopHatredNow is aimed at individual artists, cultural influencers, and institutions of art and culture. Free seminars, discussions and workshops offer more information on allyship and solidarity as well as concrete ways to work. The events are held by numerous experts, such as Sandrine Micossé-Aikins (Diversity Arts Culture, Germany), Thomas T. Presto (Head of Critical Friends and Artistic Director, Norway), Natasha A. Kelly (academic activist and filmmaker, Germany) and artists Camille Auer, Carmen Baltzar and Sepideh Rahaa.
The event is organised by UrbanApa, Culture for All, Cultural Centre Caisa, Goethe-Institut, Aalto University's Department of Art, ARMA, ArtsEqual, Interkult ry, Globe Art Point, and Zodiak – Center for New Dance.

The event takes place in Zodiak, Cultural Centre Caisa and Hanaholmen.
