The Nordic societies are ever changing and increasingly culturally and linguistically diverse. Nevertheless, the existing arts and culture institutions do not yet reflect these changes or the diverse reality that exists in the Nordics. Which action is needed to normalize inclusivity and diversity?

The seminar discusses on how the cultural and linguistic diversity has influenced in the Nordics, in the diversifying performing arts scene. Which new ways of working and new forms of collaboration are needed to create a more inclusive and equal performing arts field? How can inclusivity and diversity be ensured on, around and in front of the stage? Whose stories are told in the Nordic Region?

The seminar Building Bridges: The Concrete Action for Interculturalism and Inclusion in Nordic Theatre brings together decision-makers and performing arts professionals in the Nordic Region to discuss on concrete action for more intercultural and inclusive performing arts scene.
