Aboagora 2024 explores war and the red planet through the means of science and art

The science and art event Aboagora’s theme in 2024 is Mars, the Bringer of War. The three-day event will be held for the 14th time at the Sibelius Museum in Turku 28–30 August 2024.

Aboagora’s ethos is that solving the pressing problems of our time requires not only an interdisciplinary approach, but also a combination of scientific and artistic perspectives. The military Mars theme is approached from a culturally and scientifically wide perspective, characteristic of the event. The presentations, panels and workshops of the event deal with, among other things, human rights, post-war recovery and peace, sounds of war, war memorials, the effects of war on nature and the future after the war – peace. The program also approaches Mars as a celestial body: its astronomical features, musical frequencies and literary imagery.

The Agora sessions, i.e. the keynotes of the event, are free of charge and open to all, and do not require advance registration. In addition to the Agora sessions, panels, workshops and artistic sessions will be experienced in Aboagora over the course of three days. With the exception of Agora keynote speeches, the event requires registration. The entrance fee for the three-day event is 50 €. Students, doctoral researchers and professional artists get tickets at a reduced price of 20 €.
