COVID-19 has changed, restricted, and blocked the ways and opportunities for artists working in community arts context. Yhteisö tanssii ry and Zodiak are organizing a peer meeting where the participants have the opportunity to meet colleagues and share experiences and jointly plan new strategies for the world before and after the COVID-19.

Welcome to a meeting for artists working in community Mon 26.10. from 3 to 5:30 pm to the Zodiak stage!

The discussion will be moderated by Pia Houni, Ph.D. We have also invited health and social care professionals to take part in the debate so that we can together start to plan new operational cultures.

The event will be held in Finnish.

Please feel free to share the invitation!
