@ Stakladen
Vær med når vi slår hjerner og hjerteblod sammen med Hearts & Minds-festivalen om en helt speciel Pecha Kucha Aften med fokus på Det Gode Liv – herunder også Mad, som er temaet for årets festival. Vi vil til formålet fremtrylle 8–10 oplægsholdere, der hver vil tale inden for et aspekt af netop Det Gode Liv og/eller Mad.

Dørene åbner kl. 19.00, og oplæggene bliver serveret kl. 19.30. Vi kører i to sæt med en pause indimellem, og hvis du har lyst til at støtte Pecha Kuchas arbejde kan du lægge en mønt i hatten til frivillig entre.

Arternes Aarhus

@ VOL 34 ON SEP 13, 2017

"Arternes Aarhus" (ENG: "The species of Aarhus") is about giving a voice to all the species in the city of Aarhus, and not just the humans. Nina Tofte Hansen tells the quirky story of the species-ambassadors of Aarhus, and how other life forms are given consideration through these people. The audience is introduced to both the current Mole- and Dandelion-ambassador, and a tree - which is of course an Aarhusian as much as anybody else in the city.
