International perspectives on artistic freedom and the role of culture in society

Co-hosted by Swedish Arts Council,
19 September 2019, Sweden

In Sweden, questions about artistic freedom have been widely debated for the past two years. But how are issues of freedom of speech, political governance and the role of art handled in other countries? How can synergies arise between culture, education and business?

Welcome to listen to new perspectives from Argentina, Canada, England, Ireland, Lithuania, Malaysia, Namibia and Solomon Islands, among others!

On Thursday, September 19, the Swedish Arts Council invite you to an open seminar on the role of culture in the development of society from an international perspective.

The seminar will be held in the lobby of the Garrison in Stockholm between 16:30 and 18:00.
